    Is actually real, those are the giant crystal formations discovered in a mine in Mexico when underground water was pumped out of a chamber system. It's a fascinating story to learn about, it's so hot in the crystal chambers that scientists have to wear special cooling suits to go inside and study, and can still only spend a short amount of time inside.
