Beautiful!

Mining operation in Mexico reveals cave of giant crystals, some more than 30 feet long.

Geologist Juan Manuel GarcĂ­a-Ruiz calls it "the Sistine Chapel of crystals," but Superman could call it home.

A sort of south-of-the-border Fortress of Solitude, Mexico's Cueva de los Cristales contains some of the world's largest known natural crystals — translucent beams of gypsum as long as 36 feet (11 meters).

Take a look at these beauties:


There's a guy standing on them.

That seems like a good example of the 'self-similarity' of fractals -- if that man wasn't in the pic, you wouldn't know if the crystals pictured were microscopic scale or 6" size (I NEVER would've guessed that these crystals could get THIS big!)
