Cave of crystals
Naica Mines, Chihuahua, Mexico
Editor: This is a coincidental Phoon. My boss had forwarded a link to a BBC show about
caves. I passed that on to friends. Mom replied she saw an almost-Phoon, so I rewatched
the clip. Sure enough! Impressive video worth watching: BBC video (Phoon is at 1:38
mark). The temperature in there is 50C (122F). Everyone had to wear special ice cube suits
and breathing apparatus to survive, exiting the cave with heartrates above 180.
Thanks to unknown for phooning and to Doris for the photo idea.
