Crystal Caves, Mexico





http://www.stormchaser.ca/Caves/Naica/Naica.html

Now here is a link you might want to read. Very interesting. About the giant crystal cave, in Naica, Mexico.

What an exciting story. They have to enter the cave with special suits and can only stay 30/50 minutes, depending on the person. Every step they take, must be taken with caution. If not, they could be impaled on crystal.
Check it out. There is so much we don't know about on this wonderful planet, thanks to people like this for sharing their stories.
Till next time, keep looking up.

That's the coolest thing I have ever seen! I am really intrigued to learn why they are limited in the time allowed inside the cave. Off to read the article, thanks for providing the link.

OMG! 228 degrees? That's insane! It makes me sad to read that this natural wonder will one day just disappear simply because it will no longer be "profitable". Amazing place.

Wow...what a sight. It is very pretty for sure :P

Oh, Elissa is doing very fine now. She is not going to school until next week...happily twanging the guitar away (will have to get use to that now..). My colleague has completed 5 courses of chemo, seems she is coping fine with some discomfort but nothing major. Another 5 more to go and hopefully she is fit enough to bounce back to work. Much love.......M

That is stunning. I've never heard of such a place and can't imagine how scary it would be inside of those caverns. I've worn hazmat suits and know how awkward it is to work in those so I imagine these cooling suits aren't a cakewalk either.
