Mineral Two on Moh's Scale (or) some really big Selenite Crystals

I trust that most people noticed the spectacular image on the inside cover of this issue of Wat On Earth. I must admit that when I received this photograph together with several others about a year ago from a friend in the United States my initial reaction was … “Well, someone has been busy with Photoshop!” However, a little checking on the web revealed that these are genuine photographs and they tell a very unusual tale of an interesting locality in Mexico. 
 
Now I (like many of you) have found individual selenite crystals before.
