The Island Paramani of the Nyingma Island Group has deep holes in its center where men have mined the rock for centuries, unearthing precious quartz from the ground, which has had a million uses over the course of history: A crystal prized by many different nations for quite varied applications.
The island is about 3 kilometers in diameter and up to 344 meters high at its highest point. The volcano that takes up much of its 330 hectares of approximate surface area. The stratovolcanic layers of Paramani are laced with different types of quartz and and sulfur, and during the roughly one hundred year long dormant periods of the volcano, pools of slightly sulfuric water form natural hot springs in various places within and around the caldera.
While the mountain itself is relatively barren, in part due to the excessive mining operation, the thin strips of verdant forest around the southern coastal line house some unique versions of animals found on the Nyingma island group.
The natural resources of Paramani are various gemstones, but mostly quartz, rose quartz, and amethyst. Additionally, large sulfur deposits are stored within the caldera.
Limestone deposits are also littered across the eastern coast of the island, and with its location within the Corsic Ocean and extensive reefs that formed around volcanic rock make the area a treasure trove for fishing, crab fishing, and mussels.
