    I can't help but think Fingon's cave and the Hebrides had something to do with the lyrical descriptions of caves in Tolien's 'Lord of the Rings'. I think we all recognize what a syncretist work it was, and I would not be the least bit surprised if this was the inspiration for the glittering caves near Helm's deep.
