Grand Prismatic Spring Terraces
$100.00 – $1,500.00
Thousands of little terraces are created from the deposition of silicates in the overflowing hot water from Grand Prismatic Spring. Each of these ridges is about half an inch tall. A later burst of heavier flow flooded a section of these terraces with more silicates, creating something that looked like a thin crust of melted sugar. Flooded with hot water, the runoff terraces from Grand Prismatic Spring imparts a silvery, glossy surface to each miniature pool which gives it a frozen, smooth appearance, but it is as fluid as the sea.
