Architectural Gem | Mexico’s Cave of Crystals
It’s been referred to by geologists as “the Sistine Chapel of crystals,” but most us of us can’t help thinking of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude. BBC offers us this spectacular footage from inside Mexico’s Cueva de Cristales, discovered accidently by miners in Naica back in 2000 and which, up until now, houses the largest crystals in the world.
Now that’s what I call an architectural gem, designed by Mother Nature herself.
The footage is featured in an episode of the new BBC series How Earth Made Us (Deep Earth).
