Aiken Spring, located in China’s Gobi Desert, is also known as the “Devil’s Eye.” Its memorable moniker may have been derived from its stark difference from the land surrounding it. Because of the sulfur content of the body of water, the land around the spring is barren. When looking at maps or photos, the spring looks like an eye surrounded by reddish brownish skin.
