A young French climber on Mont Blanc has made an incredible find of a treasure trove of rubies and sapphires that had been buried for decades.
The jewels, estimated to be worth up to 246,000 euros ($356,435), lay hidden in a metal box that was on board an Air India plane when it crashed on the mountain about 50 years ago.
The honest young climber turned the entire haul in to local police but if no one claims it, the treasure is his to keep. We can’t promise you’ll be that lucky when you trek Mont Blanc but you will treasure the memories of incredible scenery at least:-)
