    Mojang could add the Giant Crystals Cave which is a real cave in Mexico, this type of cave/structure should be very rare, with giant crystals that are transparent but also emit light and are partially submerged in water and you can mine those crystals only with diamond or better pick with silk touch, because again they are ultra rare and fragile

    The cave of crystals in Mexico has fascinated me since I learned of it, to see something like it in Minecraft would be amazing!

    I feel that to prevent the caves from being mined out the crystals should not have any use besides maybe a light source, these caves should just be an incredible natural wonder.

    I think this has more relevance in 1.17 and should be brought back to attention!

    Amethyst geodes are in 1.17 so I guess this is a thing

    This kinda gets implemented in the Caves and Cliffs with amethyst geodes, but I still think it would be cool to have a bigger structure full of crystals. Maybe something other than amethyst?

    Mojang is doing something similar: amethyst geodes

    They would glow from the tip. This would make sure that the cave is not illuminated completely. In order for this to work, there must be various types of crystals.

    Coloured lighting would make this even better!

    I hope we see this during the cave update, like not just geodes but a crystal cave biome

    I think something like the fabricator caverns from Subnautica: Below Zero would be cool

    maybe they use the amethyst blocks and if you travel for long enough, it might even lead you to a beautiful amethyst geode

    I made a similar suggestion for a new cave biome based on the Chihuahua, Mexico crystal caves where huge quartz crystals grow in multiple directions along with either end rods, or grass-like nether quartz crystals on the walls and ceilings. The huge crystals are made of either white stained glass or nether quartz blocks. I want a block called Quartz Glass like white stained glass with the bottom quartz block texture

    I have ton of ideas for this concept, but let us start with the basics.

    Types of crystals and the block spectrum
    The crystal types are listed in this order. Crystal bud, growing crystals, crystal spikes, crystal growths, crystal base blocks, budding crystal base blocks, crystal spike blocks, and crystalizing stone and deepslate. The block spectrum is just like a normal cave biome, but add calcite. The generation of this biome is a normal caves biome layout bu t with an occational crystal geode, and crystal spikes ranging from a block large to the hight of the cave, skattered all over the place.

    Crystal species
    .amethyst
    .overworld courtz
    .emerald
    .agate
    .diamond
    .ruby

    Crystal uses
    A normal crystals drop crystal shards, which can be used to make the lens, which when used, focuses light, but can also do damage to undead mobs as a weapon and lighting source. Shards can also be put in stone cutters to make normal cut crystal forms like the normal emerald, which can now be traded with villagers. Normal crystals can also be used in smithing tables to enhance gear. Crystal spike and base block can be crafted into shards. Crystal spikes are like dripstone. If you fall on it, you take damage, if it falls on you, you take damage. I love this idea, i just wanted to add some context to what might happen inside the biome itself.
