#5 I get what you are saying but people have to wear special suits to be in it for a while due to sauna like environment, although it should not be a problem for true romantics. Also I believe it is now flooded again unless the scientific teams pumped the water out again.

#2 Selenite crystals are actually not that expensive, imagine if all of it was made of diamond :S Mexico would turn into a superpower or the the Mafia will get 100x more powerful.

Given the right conditions these crystal can form in just a few hundred years, proper heat, moisture, and gasses or minerals in the water. Just like stalactites can form quickly; not millions of years, just the right atmospheric conditions.

Plus they don't let many into that cave because most of the crystals have razor sharp edges, very dangerous place! :O

Drunvalo talks about a massive hollow Earth inner city of HUGE crystals just south of Mexico city inside a volcano, where he says the Plasma People (aliens) reside inside the crystals. He claims to have visited & met with these people who once lived on Earth as we do. See You Tube for Drunvalo & Lilou Mace ~ Plasma People. ~Durban~ South Africa ~
