Cave of Crystals

Well, if you have read the first of today's post and are feeling a little disheartened.
Get a lode of this, something out of this world and yet, a part of our beautiful world.
Amazing. Take a couple minutes and watch the video

A rare glimpse of the cave of crystals

Mexico's Cave of Crystals stunned geologists when it was first discovered in 2000. The underground chamber contains some of the largest natural crystals ever found - some of the selenite structures have grown to more than 10m long.

  1. Insane. It's like something out of one of those Doug McClure movies. Remember them?

  2. Nope,doug McClure I do not recall.

    But, I think the crystal cave is amazing, really other worldly looking.

  3. I'm glad it's not accessable to the public, and I'm especially glad that it will be reflooded.

    Beautiful, for sure - but let's face it - people would just wreck it.

    I also wonder at how much damage has already occurred by exposure to air.

  4. Note, if they do reflood what water will they use? Here's hoping that it will be close to the superstaturation of the original fluid.
