Le Cristal Ligérien - David Génot



Hello everyone!

My name is David Génot, and I am located in Maine et Loire near Angers. I explain below my journey in a few lines.

I founded in 2020, Le Cristal Ligérien, which is the result of the hard work of a passionate of mineralogy and a family history.
From a very young age, I shared my weekends between prospecting and shows where my parents exhibited.
At the age of 23, I set up on my own as a cab craftsman, but very quickly I was caught up by my passion for "pebbles".

That's why, at the end of 2018, I decided to stop my previous job to launch myself professionally in what has always been close to my heart, mineralogy, and thus try to live from this great passion. I have therefore recently started to work at trade fairs as a professional.

This new job also allows me to travel, something I love. In fact, I left for India at the end of 2019, which allowed me to bring back directly from the source, full of magnificent minerals that you can find in my sales.

Parallel to the various shows in which I exhibit and in order to continue what my father Jean GENOT had started, I am currently setting up a small "private museum" to exhibit 50 years of collection. This "show-room", open to all and of free admission, will house more than 1500 mineral species and 500 fossils. (You can find the follow-up of the work on my facebook page Le Cristal Ligérien).

I hope to continue to keep this family collection alive in order to share this magnificent passion with whoever wants to share it.

Thank you for taking the time to read me and I look forward to meet you :)

Terms of sales

Buying a mineral from a distance is not always easy for a collector. Size, weight, description, one can easily be disappointed once he has taken possession of his purchase. Nothing more unpleasant for a collector.
Also, and despite all my efforts to make my sales as accurate as possible, I will accept returns (shipping costs at your expense) if a piece does not meet your expectations. However, the returned mineral will have to be sent back in its original packaging and will be checked before reimbursement. A photo of the mineral in its box before the return will also be requested, simply to clear customs in case of breakage by the carrier.

Returns by Mondial Relay (Offered from 50 € purchase).
Colissimo followed, on request of the customer with a supplement corresponding to the difference with Mondial Relay.
Shipping costs vary according to the weight of each piece and are indexed according to the current price offer.
You can also come and pick up your purchases directly at my home, it will be a pleasure to receive you.
For any order outside of France, please contact me for shipping costs.

Payment via Paypal, bank transfer, credit card, check or cash at home.

If you are looking for a particular piece, do not hesitate to ask me, many stocks still in cardboard.
Lots of pictures are available, and do not hesitate to contact me via Messenger if you are missing an info.
You can also reach me by email.
