CLAUDE FRANCOIS: A piece of petrified wood from Mauritius, given to Claude François during his stay in Mauritius in October 1973. The singer had brought back this 10,000-year-old gift and kept it preciously on the shelves of his bedroom in his Paris apartment. This Goethite stone (a hydrated iron oxide giving yellowish, orange and black colors) is known for its healing action in the ear, nose and throat areas. It can also soothe ENT symptoms and stimulate concentration in people with attention deficit disorders. It has the ability to strengthen the blood and improve the oxygenation process. Height: 13.5 cm. Diameter: 11 cm. When his son passed away, Chouffa recovered this gem, of which he spoke so often, and kept it by his bed for a long time.
