Wow!
It reminds me of the crystal set they used in the superman movies!

but this is nicer by far! To bad they did not show the rest of the cave.....
There are some videos on You Tube, but not much since it is hard to film there.
Due to copyright i guess!

So this being out in the middle of the desert, does that mean it's government owned/ If so, wouldnt that make it illegal to be drilling down there? And what would happen if someone found something like this like these guys have? are they allowed to claim rights to it? Aswell as make money off it?

Just a few questions if anyone can answer them.

Regards, Lee


Yes something like this could make you a lot of money..

Why, do you ask BTW....?

Hmmmmm, U found something there, that your not letting the rest of your ATS buddies in on..?

We have ways of making you talk you know


Ha! After reading through what I had wrote, it does come across like that actually!... The only caving I ever get up to is rummaging through the cupboard under the stairs! lol.

Isn't it incredible that all that beauty exists underneath a desert that is currently seeing so much violence and upheaval? Chihuahua is basically the epicenter of the Mexican drug cartel wars and has been a horrible place for many years now. It almost makes me wonder if maybe there is some truth to the idea that crystals hold energy, both positive & negative emotionally speaking. Who knows, maybe these crystals that are so beautiful and spectacular harbor a dark secret that could explain the reason why Chihuahua has long been the center of violence, rape, murder, and God knows what else?


Me.. I don't know, but if I were pressed to make an educated guess I'd have to attribute it to lack of authority and law, not a crystal.

Chihuahua has long been the center of violence, rape, murder simply because there is no "law", it is all corrupt completely down to it's core.

Ever "wonder" why there aren't any American cities like Chihuahua?
Sure there is crime, in many US cities.. murder included, in fact quite a lot of it, but nothing like Chihuahua or a thousand other towns and cities in Mexico.

There are crystals everywhere underground in caves, they are not an oddity by any means.

The culprit is MAN, and what we are capable of doing without a line being drawn. No mystery, no sprits, no special "dark" forces..

Just humans.


(back on subject)
The pictures are AWESOME, I'd love to have one in my house.. but that would mean they'd have to mine them.. so damn, nevermind.

I think I saw these YEARS ago but it might have been a similar find. I remember distinctly the "orange" man scale theme.

Good find

Thanks guys... I think it is news again because a concerted effort to explore it has begun... that is at least how I understood the article.

I am glad to see that the men are wearing masks, there is no telling what can be in the cave bacteria wise since it has been untouched for so long.


Their masks are actually to prevent the moisture in their breath from damaging the crystals. Likewise, touching them with bare skin would also damage them. Bacteria have nothing to do with it.

I have to agree with the Anon poster- this is indeed old news and has been "out" for years.
Great pics though!!

Great example too of how our news is manipulated -- and how long it took for this discovery to go "mainstream". This one took at least 5 years.

And yes, they are indeed simply amazing. What is just below our own feet.....if one just cares to look.

...naughty explorer!


Anyway some people claim these crystals have healing properties, this would be the ultimate way of testing it; get some sick people in there for a while and measure what happens. If nothing happens throw some of those holistic healers in who say they can use the crystals to heal and measure again.

I tried telling people on the first page about your post last year, and posted the original link but people ignored hit.

Great original post Zooplancton!

Old post or not I have never seen it and it is incredible.

Not surprising but refreshing to see such beauty.

Without a shadow of a doubt, these are photoshopped, there's too many inconsistent sharp lines in the images, which happens when an image is scaled on top of a lower resolution image.
