Neptune Memorial Reef - Florida's bizarre underwater cemetery reminiscent of Atlantis - Altered Dimensions Paranormal
The Neptune Memorial, also known as the Atlantis Memorial Reef, is an underwater cemetery located three miles off the coast of Key Biscayne, Florida. At over 16 acres in size, it is also the world's largest man-made reef built to hold the remains of over 125,000 people. Persons buried in the Atlantis Memorial Reef are cremated and their ashes mixed with concrete to form 10-pound sculptures of starfish, shells, coral, and other Atlantis-themed shapes. A copper and bronze memorial plaque, etched with the person's name, date of birth and death, is then attached to the object which is fixed to the reef to create the "features" that make the underwater cemetery so unique.
