  1. Oh, by the way. I’ve been there! When I was in high school I went to Mexico to live for a week and we had special permission from the Mexican government to tour the mine.
    The giant crystals mentioned above are a new discovery but somewhere in that same mine are some smaller crystal formations that were about the same size as 2 or 3 firelogs placed end to end. I remember going in there and it was hot but not 112 degrees. I have pictures of the crystals and I’m kicking myself that I didn’t take more.
    When we asked how long the cave was, the instructor told us that they didn’t know how far it went, but went far enough down that it was inhabitable and too hot for humans. There was also a show about it on National Geographic channel recently.
    Fascinating!!!
