Summary:The minerals in the areas of the Argentiere and Talefre glaciers in the Italian portion of the Mont Blanc massif are described. The most spectacular examples are quartz crystals (rock crystal, smoky quartz and amethyst) of considerable size and large crystals of pink fluorite. Examples of bi-colour (pink and green) fluorite have also been found. The matrix rock is a biotite granite. [M.O'D.]
