Journey to the Centre of the Earth by Holle on 30 October 2006 10:56pm
 
Are there any Jules Verne fans here around? And have you enjoyed the movie 'The Journey to the Centre of the Earth'? Well, I like it very much, especially the scenes with chambers full of giant crystals illuminated by some kind of fluorescence light.
As someone, who has been a lot below surface in serveral mines (my personal deep record lies at 1800 meter in a meanwhile closed uranium mine), I have seen some interesting geological formations and nice crystals (mostly of a size you can easily carry in your pocket). But usually, if you come deeper into the Earth's crust, it's simply becoming pitch-black, wet and hot and there are no fantastic underground worlds. Or at least I thought so far. Sometimes nature even beats the imagination of filmmakers, just have a look:
