Impressions from a fantastic pocket with rock crystals in 2003-2006

Together with friends we worked a cleft in the Lötschen Valley area during the years
2003-2006. We found clear Quartz crystals up to 12 cm, beside this, mostly perfect specimens with inclusions of Ilmenite. With very hard work we came more than 6 meters into the rock and got lots of undamaged groups in good size. All the years we were warmly welcome in the “Ahnenhütte” and could celebrate the good finds every evening!
