  Conrad Gessner
Conrad Gessner (Konrad von Gesner, Conradus Gesnerus) (26 March 1516-13 December 1565) was a Swiss naturalist born in Zurich.
To non-scientific readers, Gesner will be best known for his love of mountains (below the snow-line) and for his many excursions among them, undertaken partly as a botanist, but also for the sake of mere exercise and enjoyment of the beauties of nature.
In 1555 Gesner issued his narrative (Descriptio Montis Fracti sive Montis Pilati) of his excursion to the Gnepfstein[?] (6299 ft.), the lowest point in the Pilatus chain, and therein explains at length how each of the senses of man is refreshed in the course of a mountain excursion.

Gesner's Fossils, Stones, and Gems is significant primarily for two contributions to the study of fossils, minerals, rocks, and gems.
Despite the fact that neither Gesner nor his contemporaries recognized fossils as the remains of living things, he applied his remarkable knowledge of zoology to a practical classification of many fossils.
But it was Gesner's early illustrations and some of his methods of classification that highlighted the remarkable similarities between the fossil record and living organisms.
