The speleo-aerosol, a potential therapeutic factor in speleotherapy, was studied in the Císařská cave. The ultrafiltration was used for the particle separation. The matter found on the ultrafilters consisted of ultra-fine matter (UFM) and rougher particles (RP) about 1 micrometer in diameter. Ca and Si were found as major and minor element in the UFM, respectively. The rest of UFM probably consisted of organic matter. In the RP, Ca and Si were found as major and K, Na, Al, Na, and Fe as minor elements. The stoichiometric ratios of the elements related to CaCO3, SiO2, feldspar, and clay minerals. Based on the structural X-ray analysis, however, just calcite and quartz were proved.
