The lava seawater is similar to other seawater or deep ocean water in sodium and magnesium, but is highly valued for its rich rare mineral content such as vanadium (0.015 ppm), selenium (0.013 ppm), zinc (0.019 ppm) and iron. Another advantage is that it is naturally filtered through rock layers and is clean underground water resource.

There are various uses of the lava water. It can be bottled water, used as an ingredient for tofu or yogurts, and developed as functional beverages. It can also be used as a resource for cosmetics which need clean water and useful for growing crops. The sodium that is left after the lava seawater is purified can be commercialized as natural salt.

Lava flow from the crater went along the coastal slope to the Northeast and formed a unique geographical feature called Seonheulgot.

Each of these caves has its own unique features.
