    Crystal Caves

    Be sure to check out the photo galery, amazing stuff: http://www.naica.com.mx/english/index.htm

    These are caves full of huge crystals. They might be useful for some environmental reference too.

    Love this place. They wear the suits because the humidity is so high they can't sweat. Plus it's really hot. So you'd die pretty quickly down there.

    I hope the mine gets exhausted and they flood the caverns again so the crystals can go back to growing. They'd probably completely fill up the area over the next few thousand years.

    Yea, when I read about those it was amazing. Never really thought about how big crystals could get. There might be caves that crystals multiple times the size of those ones.

    Perhaps diamonds the same size that we'll never reach.
