Summary (From the publisher):

A seemingly simple fable of two children lost in a glittering landscape, is eloquent in its innocence but is imbued with an awareness of the fragility of life. This is a wintry story of village life in the high mountains but also a parable of belief and faith. The rock crystals of the title are the shards of ice of the glacier that dominates the landscape.
