Pestera cristalelor

 In anul 2000, doi frati care sapau in mina Naica din apropierea orasului  mexican Chihuahua au descoperit Cueva de los Cristales, o pestera adaposteste niste cristale impresionante. Cum s-au format acesti giganti stralucitori? Echipe de cercetatori si speologi incearca sa dezvaluie acest mister. Apa bogat mineralizata care s-a infiltrat in caverna de sub muntele Naica timp de o jumatate de milion de ani pare sa fie responsabila de producerea unor asemenea frumuseti greu de imaginat. Moleculele de sulfat de calciu au precipitat continuu, temperatura constanta a pesterii si aportul constant de apa permitand cristalelor sa atinga aceste dimensiuni impresionante.

In apropierea Pesterii Cristalelor se mai gasesc unele similare, dar care adapostesc cristale mai mici: Pestera Lumanarilor, Pestera Sabiilor si Ochiul Reginei.

Vreti sa vizitati acest loc mirific? Trebuie sa aveti in vedere ca temperatura interioara este de 44 de grade Celsius, cu o umiditate de peste 90%, punand in pericol viata. Din acest motiv aventurierii care vor sa vada cristalele cu proprii ochi trebuie sa poarte echipamente menite sa ii protejeze de hipertermie.
Dar nu riscam nimic daca admiram aceste minunatii in fotografii. :)
Eu le-am luat de aici , dar gasiti unele mult mai frumoase aici , iar aici puteti citi un articol foarte frumos al National Geographic despre Pestera cristalelor.
Ce spuneti, v-ar placea sa explorati un astfel de loc? Eu cred ca ar fi o experienta extrem de interesanta.

  1. Interesant e putin spus. Nu pot sa cred cam ce poate natura sa creeze. America de Sud, zici.

  3. Iulia, eu ziceam America de Nord...dar poti sa incerci sa ajungi si in cea de Sud. :)

    Traveling Hawk, sa te uiti si pe site-urile pe care le-am enumerat in articol. Par ireale fotografiile acelea.
