The most beautiful and amazing thing I've ever seen. It was taking the image a while to download ('cause I'm on dial-up) I thought at first I was seeing just a small group of individual crystals. When it finally downloaded, I realized that the small orangish, reddish smears scattered in the picture were people!
Thanks for posting it, Risen.

It's like the people shrank or something. Very cool.
Freude, schĂ¶ner GĂ¶tterfunken Tochter aus Elysium, Wir betreten feuertrunken, Himmlische, dein Heiligtum! Deine Zauber binden wieder Was die Mode streng geteilt; Alle Menschen werden BrĂĽder, Wo dein sanfter FlĂĽgel weilt.
Well I can't say that I am that much impressed. From what I understood from the story those are just CaCO3 crystals that are somewhat bigger then it is usual.
As far as I know in Brazil you can find crystals that are 200 feet long.
I don't know. They say these are the largest crystals on earth, and 200 feet sounds rather impossible to fit anywhere. Did you see the pictures??? Those things are like towers compared to the size of the people.
Oooo, I watched a show on these. It was on right after the one I was planning on watching. (Draining the Oceans. Which happened to be friggin' sweet!)
It was interesting how big they were, but it was disappointing when they described how they were soft. I wanted them to be like giant diamonds, and all of the scientists could band together and make a buster sword like Cloud's, just for me.
They'd ship it to me right as they were done and I would do battle with evil-doers and fucked up junkies that would try to attack me in the alley when I get off work. I would just say, "screw that, you aren't getting any money from me!" and then as I smash his face while doing an imitation 'braver' on his face with my crystalline buster sword I would exclaim VAE VICTIS, woe to you little punk ass!
