Since 2016, the designer Marine Petroff is developing this concept with passion. Fascinated by crystals and admiring this uncommon activity of crystal hunting, the evidence was for her : the crystal enhanced by a jewel.
Imagine : a wearable gem from Mont-Blanc, with a perfect and natural geometry, aged of a few 15 millions of years, extracted from the erosion by alpinists who pick them close to 4000 meters high ! You will then discover, impelled by its story, the gemstone in all its beauty.
We owe the existence of these crystals to Mother-Nature, and their "picking" to the crystal seekers. What we are talking about are rarities, fruits of a crystallization dating from the formation of rocks, that we recognize the fossil nature. Some of these stones will delight our eyes, others will never be discovered, and so will keep the magic of our mountains !
