Narrative

Nom donné à une île situé à l'est des Sept-Îles et au nord de l'île du Gouverneur, dans la baie Pierre-Lejay, de l'archipel de Pointe-Géologie ; ainsi donné à cause des formations de glace dues au gel des embruns qui la recouvrent durant l'hiver et qui présentent l'aspect d'énormes champignons.
