Steel Pipe with Solid Rock Inside
Underneath the streets of Karlovy Vary in the Czech Republic is a cauldron of thermal activity. As a result, this town has been known for centuries for its thermal waters. In 1991 the pipes from beneath the streets in Karlovy Vary were removed that carried the thermal water to various locations around the town. The pipes were in need of replacement. They were getting “clogged” with mineral deposits, specifically calcium carbonate in the crystal-form of aragonite. Aragonite is a mineral known in many caverns around the world. In our newest book, Untold Secrets of Planet Earth: Catastrophic Caves, a portion of pipe is shown which was removed from underneath Karlovy Vary’s streets. Here is your opportunity to own a 1-cm slice of history. This slice of pipe which shows how quickly rock can really form (inside the pipe) is beautifully displayed in a wooden box with detailed information. This pipe, which is presented in our newest book, is about 15 cm across. If you want to read about all of the details, you can purchase the book in our store (Untold Secrets of Planet Earth: Catastrophic Caves). There is a limited supply of the pipes (no more are available).
