not sure if this is appropriate for the fragile earth thread, but part of me thinks it's perfect.

this is "the crystal caves" in chiuahua mexico. my best friend got to visit these recently (as they are not open to the public) and passed along these photos from his colleague.

i can't imagine the energy emanating from a place like this. it's apparently very hot in there and people have died there from exposure to the heat.

i thought i'd share these with you.
imagine what else lays below the earth's surface in various parts of mother earth.

enjoy!

Beautiful photos, thanks for posting them they are massive crystals.

Nature is so beautiful I wonder what event caused these crystals to form on such a large scale?

Looks Photoshopped, lack of shadows emanating from the cavers and the lighting or the source of lighting is just wrong in a cave.

Check the websites provided. The cave is not fake, his pictures however I can't vouch for. But the cave and the size of the crystals are very much real!

It doesn't look photoshoped at all. It looks like there are multiple spot lights set up, thus no single strongly defined shadow. It all looks normal to me and as has been shown in other links that the place is indeed real.

Why is the man in the picture wearing that orange suit?

Have you ever heard of refraction?
Light refracts due to the change of its speed when crossing transparent glasses.


Snell's law can explain your doubts

Absolutely amazing images. Sometimes mother nature astounds me. Good job there hidden away in a cave otherwise they would be destroyed by us ungrateful humans.

Kind of looks like a scene from Superman

Wow.

Thats absolutely incredible. I almost can't beleive that they are real, just looking at them, but apparently they are.

How fascinating.

There are other pictures out there, for people like me who almost can't beleive our eyes:

naica.laventa.it...

An article with many photos
www.canyonsworldwide.com...

And another:
giantcrystals.strahlen.org...

Apparently they are mostly gypsum.


Absolutely astounding.

Its easy to see why its closed to the public though, trampling on them would destroy them.


Wow, really incredible.


I think it anythign this proves that crystals don't harness and concentrate energy, that place would have to be glowing if that were the case no?

So that is where superman lives?
Has anyone seen 'The core' MOVIE? It shows giant diamonds or crystals under the earth maybe there are loads like this the planet is made up of it.

Thanks great post and it's too much of a big story to be a hoax. Cytstal energy for the future? Lost knowledge of God for man before man sinned for free energy? Just some talking points to extend the post.

I wonder if this is related to the crystal skulls. I saw a story about this on the Travel Channel last night.

www.world-mysteries.com...




Thirteen crystal skulls of apparently ancient origin have been found in parts of Mexico, Central America and South America, comprising one of the most fascinating subjects of 20th Century archaeology.

These skulls, found near the ancient ruins of Mayan and Aztec civilizations (with some evidence linking the skulls with past civilization in Peru) are a mystery as profound as the Pyramids of Egypt, the Nazca Lines of Peru, or Stonehenge. Some of the skulls are believed to be between 5,000 and 36,000 years old.

Many indigenous people speak of their remarkable magical and healing properties, but nobody really knows where they came from or what they were used for.

Were they left behind after the destruction of a previous world, such as Atlantis? Are they simply ingenious modern fakes or can they really enable us to see deeply into the past and predict the future?

Much research is currently being done on the skulls. However, their origin is still a baffling mystery. They seem to defy logic. Everything that is known about lapidary work indicates that the skulls should have been shattered fractured, or fallen apart when carved.

Just kidding.

On a more serious note,

This could explain why there are so many ufo's in Mexico.

Simple,

There is something drawing more ufo's to Mexico then other places.
Maybe these caves could be part of the reasons.

Then again it could be because Mexico freely shows ufo's on their news.

Mexico are not as secretive about it as some other countries like USA for example...
