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. Professor Iain Stewart got a rare glimpse of the subterranean spectacle while filming for the new BBC series How the Earth Made Us.

When the cave was first discovered it was just an accident.

Miners working in the Naica silver mine broke through the walls of the cavern and were astounded to discover these enormous crystals - the biggest anywhere on Earth.

Quite amazing to see how humongous these crystals are....

It's like exploring an alien planet.....

Superman's gonna get mighty pissed with people trampling around his fortress.

No one messes with the man of steel.

Ah, subterranean delights. Imagine stumbling accross something like this.
Absolutely stunning.

I would have to be closely supervised in a setting like this one. I know in my heart I would be a huge threat to chisel myself out a little keepsake.

Actually, I would like to have one of the enormous cylindrical ones as a giant pillar in the center of my house.
