The Lemurian Trigon

A glimpse at crystal collecting on the Ganesh Himāl sub-range of the Himalayas.
Discover the spectacular crystals of Ganesh Himāl on this journey to Tipling Village and back.  Hopefully this blog will answer many questions about the mining process and locality behind these unique and sacred crystals.
Why is Himalayan Quartz so special anyway?
Exquisite hydrothermal quartz, the mountain's best kept secret.  Found at altitudes so high only expertly conditioned or indigenous people can access them.  Couple this with the skill necessary to identify where these crystals may be hiding in this vast inhospitable expanse, these crystals are the crown jewel of quartz.
