Here is probably one of the best books about the world of the crystal seekers in the French Alps. The author, S├ębastien Khayati, is one of these “cristalliers”. After nearly 20 years as a cristallier, rich in experience and amazing encounters, the idea came to him to share it. The book focuses on famous names, major discoveries and well-known localities which have shaped the French alpine mineralogy for half a century. A lot of high quality pictures come to illustrate the stories behind famous finds from the Oisans area (La Gardette, Rochers de l’Armentier, Combe de La Selle, Les Deux-Alpes, Plan du Lac) to the Mont-Blanc mountains. Hard cover – 224 pages, including 550 pictures, drawings and site maps. – Written in French
