This is a limestone cavern deep underground in southern Mexico and its glittering beams were discovered in 2000 by a pair of brothers drilling nearly a thousand feet below ground in the Naica mine, one of Mexico’s most productive, yielding tons of lead and silver each year. It takes 20 minutes to get to the cave entrance by van through a winding mine shaft. Tourists have access to the inner smaller chambers, however these pictures are taken by national geographic as professionals go into the deeper chambers that reach up to 130 degrees and up. The earth is simply magnificent. :)
