CRYSTAL CAVE OF GIANTS IN NAICA, MEXICO

This is so awesome! “The Crystal Cave of Giants was accidentally discovered in 2000 by miners working in the silver and lead mine at Naica, Mexico. It lies almost 300 meters (900 feet) below the surface of the Earth and it contains the largest crystals known in the world, by far. The largest crystals are over 11 meters long (36 feet) and weigh 55 tons.” Read all about this rare and magnificent cave at eco-explorer George Kourounis’ blog here.
