crystal cave in Mexico
« on: November 26, 2009, 11:32:39 AM »
   Caught an hour long National Geographic show about the big crystal cave in Mexico, fantastic. People walking on crystals as if they were bridges. Anyone who is able should try to see it.

Oh, I think I've seen photos of those caves. Was looking at the pretty closeups of the crystals till I realised the small inclusions were people clamboring over them.  :o Like WOW!!!!  :o

yes - this is absolutely amazing.

See this old ALF thread on it - it has a link to the National Geographic article online with lots more stuff.
