World's Biggest Crystals!

Good Lord, look at the size of these things!



This is all in a cave underneath Mexico-the whole cavern is extremely delicate, so very few people are allowed to enter.

I wonder how much money you could get selling just one of those things...it friggin' looks like the fortress of solitude or something...

Here are a few more pictures that, I think, are of the same cave:

Reminds me of Donkey Kong Country. Makes me think of the music too and now I want to play it!

Re: World's Biggest Crystals!

Are you serious?

Damn! I only thought crystals of that size only existed in fantasy. But now, they actually do exist so deep in the earth's crust.

I don't know if they are worth a fortune. Maybe in their immense size, but once they are broken up, you can pretty much sell them for cheap money at the markets or something, depending on what type of crystal they are of course.

Heh, I know! Our world really is more fantastic then we give it credit for...

Also, I think I heard somewhere that the material these crystals are made of isn't actually that valuable...Gypsum, or something like that, I can't remember...

It's fake. All of it. It's a setup for a new movie coming out.

I swear it.

.. I'm not joking.

If they were diamonds... The military and defence forces would be there to protect that money source from greedy people for sure!

Re: World's Biggest Crystals!

Nah. Cave explorers don't have to wear much, depending on how deep the cave is underground.

You can walk into one like going shopping if it is that close to the surface.

Re: World's Biggest Crystals!

And I think that this would have made the News or something, or is there an article about this anywhere? If there is none of these, chances are that that is fake.

Re: World's Biggest Crystals!

I found out about this place from an article in the most recent issue of National Geographic. It's real, folks.

Re: World's Biggest Crystals!

I don't believe that it is fake.

You people are just too quick to judge. Unless Ryu-Gi can provide us with the source, I claim that it is real.

Re: World's Biggest Crystals!

You guys could just do a few quick google search before claiming its photoshop.

But still, you would think something like that would exist in fiction.

EDIT:

here is a link to the article. or atleast something similar.

http://ngm.nationalgeographic.com/20...ants/shea-text

so far its looking real to me.

Re: World's Biggest Crystals!

Re: World's Biggest Crystals!

Planet Earth amazed the human race when it gave birth to me. That's right, I was born from the Earth.

Really is amazing though, such beauty, heh.
