The enchanting Shambhala Gardens are exquisite landscaped subtropical gardens filled with some amazing treasures. On your peaceful garden walk you will encounter enormous stone statues, and extraordinary crystals, some as old as 500 million years.
The sacred gardens are filled with unusual flowering plants, and you will also discover hidden charms, such as a labyrinth, the stone spiral, an amethyst rock wall, rare crystals, ancient geodes and fossils in the lush foliage setting. This healing sanctuary has many beautiful spots for contemplation and the ambience will leave you feeling recharged and serene.
A pair of the world’s tallest geodes are now on display in the Shambhala Gardens.
Standing at a breathtaking 5.5 metres, the Crystal Guardians are an exquisite smoky quartz geode with delicate sprinklings of amethyst and calcite crystal flowers and stand as sentinels watching over the property. The impressive geodes have travelled from a remote location in Uruguay and required skilful engineering to withstand the elements and be stable in their new home.

Every geode is a mystery until it’s opened, and then it’s a wonder!
120 million years ago, in northern Uruguay, South America, a giant bubble formed inside a molten lava flow. Through intense pressure, heat and the presence of iron, millions of tiny amethyst crystals began to grow. When a farmer discovered this massive geode, Crystal Castle founder Naren and his daughter Manya flew to the site to check it out.
“We found this geode so awe inspiring, we knew we had to bring it home. This magical creation of Nature is our gift to the Crystal Castle in her 30th year. We hope you enjoy seeing what is the largest amethyst cave ever discovered in the world!”
The Enchanted cave is approximately 5.5 metres wide and weighs over 20,000 kilograms, that’s 20 tonne!!!
