Mine Cristal

Museums and interpretation centres

<
>

Canada’s unique geological gem, Mine Cristal was founded in 1989 by Gaudry and Pauline Normand. Our vocations are: mining, tourist, educational, cultural and artisanal. Our mission is to protect our beautiful site as a crystal sanctuary, to raise awareness about the mineralogical life of quartz crystals and to make our crystals accessible to the visitors. Extracted by hand in a 300-year-old massive white quartz vein, our crystals are considered to be among the most beautiful in the world. Participate in guided mine tours, crystal instrument concerts and specialized courses. Visit the store and the museum; at times, you might see crystal artisans at work!
