It’s finders, keepers for one lucky Alps trekker.

The mountain climber who discovered precious jewels on Mont Blanc will keep half the treasure, the Chamonix-Mont-Blanc council said Friday.

The unidentified mountaineer came upon nearly $169,000 of emeralds and sapphires while climbing the French peak in 2013. The fortune had been on the mountain’s Bossons glacier since Jan. 24, 1966, when an Air India plane, en route to Mumbai, crashed into Mont Blanc, killing 117 and depositing debris across the Alps’ highest butte.
