Naica Mine, Mexico
 
To find some of the largest crystals ever held by a human hand, look no further than the crystal cave. The mine is closed to the public due to its rather impressive depth and high temperatures. But plenty of photos were taken by explorers to show the world this amazing cavern.

Vatnajokull Glacier Cave, Iceland
 
Vatnajokull Glacier is the largest glaciers in all of Europe. In glaciers so big, sometimes there is a melting of icewater, and thus caves are formed. But because glaciers are not passive, but constantly change, move and break - these are extremely dangerous to visit.

Another spectacular ice cave, this cave was born of the Mendenhall Glacier in Alaska. Melting icewater carved it, but taking into account the ever-moving nature of these glaciers, it may not be around forever.
