I found this and found it sooo fascinating that I couldn't help post it here.

I'm sure there are plenty that could come up with some conspiracy theory about this... Personally I think it's just beautiful geology


Crystal Cave of Giants in Mexico


The Naica Mine of Chihuahua, Mexico, is a working mine that is known for its extraordinary crystals. Naica is a lead, zinc and silver mine in which large voids have been found, containing crystals of selenite (gypsum) as large as 4 feet in diameter and 50 feet long.

The chamber holding these crystals is known as the Crystal Cave of Giants, and is approximately 1000 feet down in the limestone host rock of the mine.

The crystals were formed by hydrothermal fluids emanating from the magma chambers below. The cavern was discovered while the miners were drilling through the Naica fault, which they were worried would flood the mine. The Cave of Swords is another chamber in the Naica Mine, containing similar large crystals.


Now people..... Spot the Person....

You know that was the first thing I thought when I saw this.

The second thought I had was about the cave entrance found on mars recently. I wonder at the weird and wonderful crystalline structures that could exist there...

All the best,

Stunning!
Like being in another world or dimension. Wish I could have been there. That is something few people ever experience.

I like this post! Everyone here seems to think the same idea as far as Superman is concerned. That is what I thought when I saw it! Awesome find! Is that crystal worth anything??

When I look at those pictures, I see an Earth history of such violence - heat and pressure galore! And now... its calm and beautiful with man placing his hand on it smiling for a camera, mind boggling and awsome! Gaia would be proud


Thanks Neon Haze

In a geological sense, they are priceless for their sheer scale. Selenite isn't all that rare though. I"m sure if you could get a whole crytal out of there relatively undamaged it would be worth a bundle(A 4 foot diameter crystal) as it could possible be carved into some pretty crazy shapes. Making a throne out of the stuff would be amazing.

I wonder what would happen if you broke a piece off and threw it in the snow..........

Another thing has been added to my 'Do before I cop it' list.

Visit the CRAZY CRYSTAL CAVE!

Great stuff! Refreshing to see something new found.

Well, all I can say is Wow!!


This is just stunning.


The crystals were formed by hydrothermal fluids emanating from the magma chambers below.

When entering the cave our group is issued helmets, lanterns, rubber boots, and gloves. One must then be driven by truck into the main mining tunnel called Rampa Sn. Francisco. While the vertical drop is approximately 1000 feet, the drive is almost a half mile long. The heat steadily increases and women have been observed to begin "glowing". The truck stops in front of a concrete wall with a steel door. The intense heat can prevent brain functioning.

Absolutely breathtaking! I wonder if there is anywhere else in the world that is even comparable?

Yep, the Fortress of Solitude .......and Superman is about the only one who could take the heat for very long........Hey, maybe it's the Sauna of Solitude!?

It made the women glow?? Whatever did they mean by that??

Amazing!!

I saw a similiar thing on TV a few months ago, a massive deep cave also in S. america and the crystal formations were breathtaking, due to the fact they were made of water, some other mineral in the stone causes some reaction with something or other to release some other chemical, anyway (sorry about the lack of detail) the crystals were bluey colour.

Later, one of the workers, with the intention of stealing crystals, managed to get in through a narrow hole. He tried to take some plastic bags filled with fresh air inside, but the strategy didn't work. He lost consciousness and later was found thoroughly baked.




LOL.

UNBELIEVABLE... I've never seen anything like it. I just can't imagine what that must look like in person.

Hey Brock Landers,

You need to alter your avatar size...

I thought this was not possible as it should go against the code right??

All the best,
