    Ooh, I like this idea! They would just slightly brighten other surrounding blocks, but their colors would still glow beautifully in the dark. I want this to be a thing now!

    There could be a new village profession the geologist. He could sell special tools you need to mine the crystals.

    That would be AMAZING, but it would be even better if you added more detail to the post.

    I have wanted something like this for so long.

    They can light up so when you get deep in a cave, it shows a dim light. That would honestly be a cool idea.

    If they where to be added crystal caves they would not easy to find they would be found rarely probably but the crystals could be used for many light sources since they are many versions of colors and this would light up your world!

    Caves definitely need more variety, and this is an idea I've loved for a while. The crystals would have to be a new block, maybe something that looks like a cross between concrete, quartz and stained glass?

    They shouldn't be as rare as for example fossils, but they should still be pretty rare. While I'd be happy for them just to be decorative blocks, if Mojang wanted them to have a use, you could use them instead of lapis to boost your enchantment levels?

    Anyway, I'm always in support of cave updates and this would be amazing. This game used to be called cave game, and "mine" is half the title. Lets make this the best.

    Maybe the crystals are enchanted in some way. I think the crystals should give off a glow. Maybe even naturally spawning enchantment tables or chests. Or maybe the crystals could be made out of solid diamonds or other things like that.

    This is a good idea but i think it would need its own type of cave aka cavern as crystals would be big and not fighting in the small confines of a normal cave

    The crystals could give off colored light and also be a controllable light by placing multiple in the same block (like sea pickles)

    I don't know why anyone has ever thought of this before! Good idea.

     I totally agree with mercy langley  , Mojang should hire some real geologist from real life because there are plenty of Minerals, Crystals and Stones that are forming in Lava, water, deep ground and so on

    Any variety for caves is a welcome thought!

    And these would be great for decoration!

    You could encrust items and tools with gems to improve them

    I agree to this. Crystal caves generate when you go deeper. That could even lead to the addition of crystals, and Ruby ore (a new gem) similar to diamonds and emeralds, and they could all be found in those caves. But that would mean that they should increase the build limit to let's say 500, and the distance between the surface and bedrock also. Increasing the rarity.

    Honestly that would make the game even better than it already is

    Crystal tool can dig twice faster than diamond tools but reliability is weaker

    Caves are so boring and I too think they need to get a massive overhaul. They are the same in each biom ,so change that and and more ores.

    What if instead of crystal caves, there would be giant geodes buried under the ground, and they could only spawn in extreme hills because of there being more "pressure"

    I so agree the caves are like darkness they have no light, the only light is the lantern. Also to think about it there should be a light update where when you hold a torch or a lantern is lights up without placing it.

    This would be a great way to get valuables and trade with villagers! This idea is amazing!

    I love it! This falls right into the cave update category and Minecraft NEEDS a cave update. 10/10 good idea.

    I like the idea, it would break up the monotone aspect of the underground. Maybe crystals could also be transparent and glow. Because it would be really cool if we could have transparent light blocks.

    Yup, good idea! These are in Terraria (I think), so why not in minecraft?
