A rare glimpse of the cave of crystals

Mexico’s Cave of Crystals stunned geologists when it was first discovered in 2000. The underground chamber contains some of the largest natural crystals ever found – some of the selenite structures have grown to more than 10m long. Professor Iain Stewart got a rare glimpse of the subterranean spectacle while filming for the new BBC series How the Earth Made Us.

ADDENDUM: Post title I should have thought of from @Durf: “It’s the Glittering Caves of Aglarond!”
