We include in this gallery a selection of Alpine Minerals, some of the most sought-after mineral specimens by the collectors such as pink Fluorites, Gwindel Quartzs, Epidotes, etc.
The Alpine Minerals are widely distributed throughout the French and the Swiss Alps as well as the Italian and Austrian Alps. Typically the season of mineral collecting is reduced to 2 or 3 months annually, and many years there is not mineral collecting at all due to the bad weather conditions, also during the summer months. The collectors who extract these minerals, known by "Cristalliers", are very experienced mountanieers. They take high risks by climbing the vertical rocky walls to access to the places where the minerals are hosted, and digging and removing the Alpine clefts.
