  • Guided by Jonathan who accompanied us all three in his passion. Visit privileged, we were just we three, family. Small explanation of the history before entering site beautiful and unspoiled, laid out with care and respect for nature. A moment of wholeness and healing among the trees. Only tools and our soil scrapings agreed. Sometimes, the oh and ah, look, because we found pieces of what we were looking, exits the ground amethysts and virgins.

  • Visit in a wonderful location in a forest where it Burrows to discover as and when the work environment of Ma and Jonathan regarding extraction of amethyst. Genesis and history through the ages of this peculiar quartz crystal we are told with precision but with simple words so that young children can easily understand. Always powered by many descriptions through questions and answers, we enter then the heart of the Gallery dug by our two guides of the day. An almost Titanic since work by respect for the surrounding nature and to preserve to the maximum the crystals, all the work of extraction is done manually with simple tools. The visit ends with a playful, with small pickaxes gardener workshop, we discover in the ground, amethysts who once cleaned we will allow to take with us a precious souvenir of this passage in Auvergne. The great value of the visit is not only at the level of the wonder of the eyes, but also at the level of human interaction by sharing this huge passion that animates Magalie and Jonathan, their humility and sincerity are touching. A great experience that will remain etched in our memories!
