Long Description:
In Hellertown is Lost River Caverns, which has an entrance that has glass cabinets that show all sorts of collectable items, including many rocks, minerals, and gems.

Lost River Caverns is located east of the center of town on Water Street - follow the signs for the caverns.

When you enter, you are at the top level where there is a desk. A person is there to provide information and reserve times to tour the caverns. In the center of the area and at the lower level is the souvenir shop, which also has a rock and mineral shop - but that is not what this waymark is for. On the ramp down to the shop are several glass cabinets that are full of all sorts of collected items, in particular, rocks, minerals, and gems.

Many of the items are unaltered examples. These have a little card with them to identify what they are. Some have been polished in to shapes like spheres. Some have been carved, such as those made of jade. There are also items carved from ivory/bone - not a rock but still interesting pieces to look at.

The hours are the same as for the caverns.
