Cristal du lac

The discovery of quartz crystal in Lac-Saint-Jean goes back a few decades. Fishermen and hunters brought back this curious stone of hexagonal and unusual shape. From 1993 to 2009 several researches and authorizations were necessary to find the exact location of the crystals as well as the quantity. It is with a desire for awareness, education and passion for minerals that Cristal du lac is born. Today, the company offers the opportunity to discover the world of geodes through several activities for young and old.

Both children and parents will be fascinated by activities such as express prospecting, pearling, the museum, the shop and the famous crystal picking accompanied by an excursion.

Cristal du lac activities take place on two sites. On 1840 Route 169 Métabetchouan-Lac-à-la-Croix, interested parties will be able to explore, witness the extraction of oyster pearls, then visit the shop and the museum. To collect quartz crystals, you will have to go to 795 route des Laurentides Métabetchouan-Lac-à-la-Croix.
