Mexico's Magical Cave of Crystals

These crystal formations were found buried deep inside a mountain in Mexico. It was discovered by two miners when excavating a new tunnel for the Industrias PeƱoles company back in 2000.

The cave is a purely natural formation consisting of enormous beams of translucent gypsum. Some of the beams are as long as 36 feet and weigh up to 55 tons!
