  3. 3. v* Largest selenite Crystals In The World The Naica Mine of Chihuahua. Mexico. is a working mine that is known for its extraordinary crystals. Naica is a lead, zinc and silver mine in which large voids have been found, containing crystals of selenite (gypsum) as large as 4 feet in diameter and 50 feet long. The chamber holding these crystals is known as the Crystal Cave of Giants, and is approximately 1000 feet down in the limestone host rock of the mine. The crystals were formed by hydrothermal fluids emanating from the magma chambers below. The cavern was discovered while the miners were driliing through the Naica fault, which they were worried would flood the mine. The Cave of Swords is another chamber in the Naica Mine. containing similar large crystals

The translucent crystals lie pltcherl atop one another, as though moonbeams Suddenly took on »weight and substance. One month later. another team of Naica miners found an even larger cavern adjacent to the first one.

These crystals are probably stable, as the temperature in the cave is over 150 degrees Fahrenheit with 100% humidity. ln other words. these structures are enveloped in steam.

Not many people, however. would venture inside casually: the temperature hovers at 150 degrees, with 100 percent humidity. A person can stay inside the cave for only six to ten minutes before becoming disoriented.

  18. 18. ln addition to 4-foot diameter crystal columns 50 feet in length. the cavern contains row upon row of shark-tooth-shaped formations up to 3 feet high, which are set at odd angles throughout. This crystal form of the mineral gypsum, is known as selenite, named after Selene, the Greek goddoss of the moon. ! Nm ; x qJJlf¡ J¡ l-l 1h I .
