That page isn't coming up yet... will try again later. There is a gypsum cave about 30 miles from Arch Mt site, in similar rocks.

Wow - I did find this :

oops, sorry for the broken link...have no clue why it's not coming up, now.
Anyway you've got it. NAICA's cueva de los cristales was exactly what I was trying to show you.
the Italian exploring team LA VENTA has been exploring, mapping studying and surveying this crazy cave for quite a long time, now. You will find a detailed report and great pictures on their website or some short vid on you tube, if you wanna google it.
