"(Coming from Pomarez). West of Dax on the D947, then take the D15 to Clermont and Pomarez. From there take the D3. Starting at the church, a road descends to the valley. There are many prospects with often twinned aragonite crystals, red quartz crystals, calcite, ophite, and gypsum." [Belot, 1978]
