Quite remarkable.

In 2006, in order to investigate, explore and make the crystal caves known to the public, the Naica Project was initiated which has given rise to an international organization that combines experience and financial and professional infrastructure, comprising scientists, researchers, photographers, artists and disseminators of various nationalities who, realizing that sooner or later that caves would disappear because of their fragility, have assumed the responsibility of recording one of the most beautiful places on the earth for posterity.

There was a programme about this on recently... it looked like hard work in there. Anyone going in there could only last 30 minutes or something daft, even with all the specialised cooling-suits they were using. IP: 77.96.28.150
