Phong Nha-Kẻ Bàng National Park in Vietnam. But just 5 years ago, the world learned of the Son Doong Cave, now considered the largest known cave on Earth.Unique features include a forest inside the cave, a rushing river, and these limestone cave pearls. Cave pearls form when dripping water pulls calcite from the cave walls and deposits it around a grain of sand. Layers grow over time, coating the sand evenly & making a spherical shape. Some can even take on a white gloss.

Taketomi Island, Okinawa, Japan  Looking like a puffy white star studded with little pearls, this is the shell of an amoeboid protist called a foraminifera, or foram. An estimated four thousand types of forams live in the world's oceans.   The shells, called tests, are made mainly of calcium carbonate, which the animals derive from carbon atoms in the air and water. Forams thus play a significant role in the carbon cycle.
