Description

The Esterel massif, located in the Var region of France, is renowned for its unique mineralogical formations, commonly known as lithophyses. These remarkable mineralogical structures were formed millions of years ago during intense volcanic activity, providing a fascinating record of the region's mineralogy. Molten magma rapidly cooled on contact with seawater, creating cavities in the rock. Over time, erosion has sculpted these cavities into spectacular shapes, displaying shades of color ranging from red to pink. Today, the lithophyses of the Esterel massif attract numerous visitors and mineralogy enthusiasts, offering an impressive testimony to the region's mineralogical history.
