Rubies, Sapphires and Emeralds at Mont Blanc.

mont blanc

Yesterday morning  in Dawn Newspaper on page 12 International, I found a piece of Mont Blanc. Right below the big picture of Rouhani, Iran’s President, there was an amusing news heading that instantly brought a big smile on my face and reminded me of “Altitude Pakistan” blog.

I knew this Mont Blanc. And how great it feels to come across something you have recently been thinking about. Voila!

A french climber recently found a box full of sapphires, rubies and emeralds which had been lying there – buried under snow for more than 40 years. According to news sources, they belong to an indian passenger who tragically died right there on Mont Blanc after a horrible plane crash. Now the interesting part. The climber who found it wishes to remain Anon. Moreover, He didn’t keep the treasure of jewels rather handed it over to the police who are trying to contact the treasure’s owners or rightful heirs.

My request to the Anon French Climber: If by any chance you’re reading this. Can we know who you are so we can nominate you for the “Honesty Award” ?  Bravo. If they don’t find the rightful heirs, I vote for the jewels to find you back and stay with you.  I’m sure you can put them to good use.

P.S. I do not own the picture.

  2. Truly an incredible story! Not sure, if I would have done the same under those circumstances, which is quite a shameful fact.
