Leela Hutchison is a Graduate Gemologist, from G.I.A., (Gemological Institute of America) explorer, researcher, and published author on crystals, gems and minerals. In January 2001, Leela was on a team of first explorers to enter the astonishing giant crystal caves. Her book is: "Journey into the Giant Selenite Crystal Caves of Mexico". You can find it on Amazon.com. The giant Selenite crystals were discovered in April, of 2000 by two miners assigned the task of drilling into bedrock searching for a vein of silver, lead or zinc. These colossal pylons of crystal are located nearly 1,000 feet down inside a 200 year old working silver mine and is in the village of Naica, Chihuahua in the Tarahumara Sierra Madre Mountains. These caves contain what are now known as the largest crystals on Earth, ranging in size to approx. 40 feet tall and weighing as much as 60 tons and estimated to be 550,000 years old. There were some interesting discoveries found in the thermal waters inside the silver mine. Such as the collection of bacteria as far as South Africa in 2009 and more recently, in February of 2017, strange microbes were found inside water bubbles resulting in weird and alien life forms never found on planet earth. In April of 2017, Leela conducted an interview with Dr. Penelope Boston, Director of Astrobiology of NASA Ames Research Center to understand the implications of these microbes on planet earth and exo-planets in our Solar System. Leela published her book: Journey into the Giant Selenite Crystal Caves of Mexico, Edition II in September 2016 and has included rare colored images of the earliest exploration.
