In this second crystal quest video, Yannick Calonge follows GrĂ©goire de Bodinat, a cristallier from the Oisans area, on the hunt for one of the rarest alpine minerals : axinite. Digging for this mineral is very paradoxical because these very fine and fragile axinite blades are found in one of the hardest matrix : amphibolite. That’s why these crystals are very hard to dig out without damaging it. Enjoy these are shots !
