January 20, 2010: Footage of Real "Fortress of Solitude" Cave Crystals

A few years ago we reported on the crystal caves discovered in Mexico which were remarkably similar to Superman's Fortress of Solitude (as depicted in "Superman: The Movie"). Now the BBC's "How the Earth Made Us" TV series gives us a closer look at this amazing underground chamber.

    Mexico's Cave of Crystals stunned geologists when it was first discovered in 2000. The underground chamber contains some of the largest natural crystals ever found - some of the selenite structures have grown to more than 10m long. Professor Iain Stewart got a rare glimpse of the subterranean spectacle while filming for the new BBC series How the Earth Made Us.
