As a little kid, I wanted to go to the north pole to find Superman’s crystal castle. Who didn’t, right? Like most kids, I was deprived of that opportunity, but I did travel to Alaska a few years later. Even as a preteen, I was a bit disappointed to find nothing suggesting crystal fortresses existed in the arctic.
Turns out I was just looking in the wrong place … all along it was in Mexico!
This real crystal cave was located by a Mexican mining company in 2000. Some of the massive crystals are over 35 feet long, considered to be among the world’s largest. Superman would have felt right at home.
