Hello ATS. Here is something to both feast your eyes upon as well as begin dwelling upon pertaining to how much we as humans really do not know, and about how much we as humans still have left to discover! Welcome to a Hollow Earth... at least part of it!

Location: District of Chihuahua, Mexico. The Naica Mines.

In 1910, at a depth of 120 meters, workers of the Penoles Mining Corporation involved with the extraction of base metal ores blasted into a cavity of untold amazement. Realizing the discovery, the tunnel that was being excavated was redirected, and the cavity sealed. What was it that caused the company to seal this cavity?

Several decades later, in 2002 and at a depth of 320 meters, the Penoles Mining Corporation, again, blasted into a broad reaching cavity that spanned off into darkness. The difference with this discovery is that the workers were blasted with a wave of air from the cavity that scalded thier skin, as the temperatures there rose to 160 degrees Farenheight!

This location too, was sealed with a huge Iron door, and the excavation rerouted.

The Mexican government has taken control of these locations, even though they are still "owned" by the Mining corporation, by enacting laws protecting these sites. What is the big deal here? What was so special about these locations, and why is it that the government had to step in?

Because these two locations were declared by the Mexican Government as National Treasures!

What was the "treasure"? Let's pay a visit in images, to find out! Welcome to the Cavern of the Crystals, The Queen's Eye Cavern, and Cave of Swords - Naica, Chihuahua, Mexico!


A little understanding... The location these caverns were discovered also sits atop a broad reaching batholith of molten lava, so the temperatures here altered the minerals that formed in these caves. Normally, you'd see the usual travertine, calcitic, and onyx based minerals in caverns consisting of Stalactites, Soda Straws, Stalagmites, and Rock Curtains. The heat index in these caverns however changed everything, forming complex paterns in the forms of Gypsum and Selenite Crystals.

At 160 degrees Farenheight, visiting the Cavern of the Crystals can be rather opressive, thus the exploratory crew prepares with cooling suit apparati and cooled oxygen breathing apparati.

Without any knowledge about where this cavity goes, a Base of Operations is set up ,

to capture imagery feedback from worn cameras,

as well as a communications system is set up.

The crew is also equipped with monitoring equippment.

Several sources of high intensity illumination are set into place, and the adventure starts!

Continued Below!

Special note: These images are copyright of Penoles Mining Corporation © 2010. A grant has been graciously provided by them to display these images here.

MODS: I understand that there may be a limitation on posted imagery, however I haven't had time to review all of the rules related to that. With that stated, I'd like to plead a special case be granted for this thread as these images are RARE, and can only be seen on one place on Earth. That given, please make an exception for the amount of images provided, to give your viewers the maximum effect to take back with them after thier reviewing such a marvel as these images alone reveal!

Thank you!

Lights, Cameras, Action!

WHOA! I'm sure that at this point this crew member got real dizzy! I know that I was. At this point, My narration will end, and I will allow you to take in the full scope of this stand alone Marvel of our World, above, and beyond anything the World has ever seen until now. Enjoy the view!

These are images from the Cave of Swords, and the Queen's Eye Cavern, which is alot cooler, thus workers are out of suit in these images.

WELL!... This tour of Hollow Earth has truly been amazing! One can only imagine how many other places in Earth's crust that exist that have the magesty of these caverns... It's no wonder the Mexican government declared these locations National Treasures! While tourism will most likely not be a factor of these caverns anytime in the foreseeable future, I'm sure that as mankind progresses technologically these wonders will be worked into a tourable location that will both give mankind the glimps into the Greatness of our Universe and Our planet this represents, as well as preserve for us this treasure that can only continue to boggle the mind, and stretch our imaginations to thier limit.

I hope you've enjoyed your trip to FantasyLand!

Great pics OP..

The world is full of surprises...

My only question is why, if its so hot in there, do most wear suits but there is one pic of a guy in a Tshirt and another guy in what looks like a Track Suit?

Are these pics not all of the same place?

BTW, they could make a fortune renting that place out to Hollywood...

What a great place to shoot a movie..

Wow cool place.

Second line.Well someone had to get it out of the way.

Beautiful, beautiful pictures! I would so travel there in my dreams.
It reminds me a bit of the humongous tree that conquered the Castle in the Sky (a movie directed by Hayao Miyazaki, one of my favorites). Except that the roots were sentient and helped protect the place from dudes who wanted to use it for evil.
I also wonder about what would happen if they fully mapped everything out... would they find different species of bacteria there? I know that the heat is not much compared to, say, a mud pot at Yellowstone, but perhaps the different chemical composition of all the stuff in there changed a few things in the DNA of whatever they could find there...

Absolutely beautiful.

How do these crystals form ? Is it anything like stalactites ?

posted on Jul, 9 2010 @ 07:29 PM
Those pictures were worth seeing again. I saw a documentary on that a while back, from what I remember, the further in they go, the hotter it gets, so the guys without the orange suits couldn't go any further than they did. There was still places they couldn't get to.

Earth sure has some beautiful places.

S&F !

The Fortress of Solitude came to mind. Jeeez how we're programmed !!

Nice find and AWESOME pics !!

Was I to believe him in earnest in his intention to penetrate to the centre of this massive globe? Had I been listening to the mad speculations of a lunatic, or to the scientific conclusions of a lofty genius? Where did truth stop? Where did error begin?

Great post OP. I wonder how those folks felt after being around all that crystal energy. If anything changed in their lives or something.

Also makes me wonder if that is a reason why we see so many "ufo" sightings in mexico... things that make you go hmmm... S&F

And this one(maybe better):

"I looked on, I thought, I reflected, I admired, in a state of stupefaction not altogether unmingled with fear!"

So this isn't something new? I've never seen anything like this, just imagined through Verne

Wow that is Amazing! Awesome pictures thanks for posting these, boggles the mind how many things we don't know about our own planet

What is generating the heat?

posted on Jul, 9 2010 @ 07:44 PM

That is amazing for lack of a better word! Thank you for sharing these pics.

So. beautiful..

Makes you wonder why corporations haven't pillaged all this beauty yet, they're doing so well with the rest of this world. (sarcasm)

Thank You OP


Love and light

Lave close under is generating the heat ..5..

Having spent years assessing risk for insurance companies I can't help thinking that there is no way their insurance company knew what these guys were doing before these pictures came out. There is no class code in Worker's Comp or General Liability called "Walking on horizontal crystal quartz columns"

Amazing stuff; they look they were being grown to serve as crystal support structures...

Fantastic thread! There is no way to know how many other areas such as this remain undiscovered.

I have a few selenite crystals (Mine don't look exactly like these) lol.
The information I have about them states they are usually formed from ancient sea salt. To the touch, they are quite soft, like a soft coal. If left for a period of time in water, they would desolve.

The following link describes how the selenite crystals in these caves were formed. (It mentions nothing about ancient seas). Hm.

I have a large bowl of this crystals. They are supposed to induce calmness, and are used by crystal healers for other things.

LMAO !!!!!!!! But can you imagine how one must feel walking in there ???

I've come back to see these pics again. How amazing !!! So many questions raise now...How long did it take to become like what we see now? Is it specific to one area or is this worldwide? Man...what I would give to have a walk in there !!!!

An undiscovered country, this planet. Just beautiful !

that's very neat and all, but I'd say it doesn't exactly prove there is a hollow earth, more like a crystal earth. Awesome pics though.
