Search for crystals

"Hunting", the search for crystals has been a tradition in the valley for decades. The Benedictine monk, Father Placidus a Spescha, was known to have searched for crystals and minerals as far back as the end of the 17th century. His knowledge has been passed on through the generations. Even today, natural treasures are still being recovered from the depths of the earth by local gem hunters.
