Presenter: Coralyn Whitney: Trip to Idar-Oberstein
Idar-Oberstein is a small cluster of towns in southwest Germany with a population of less than 30,000. The
area is known for having lots of naturally occurring agate and quartz. Stone cutting has been going on there for the past couple of hundred of years. So, there are many 4+ generation families that do stone and gem cutting. But since there are even more colorful stones else
-where, they have their contacts around the world on the lookout for fine pieces aquamarine, Zoisite, tourmaline,
etc. to add to their inventory. The main stone cutters are the Munsteiners and the Henns. We will be bringing
some jewelry and one carving for show and tell.
Recent field trip finds, jewelry you’ve made, rocks that look like Jimmy Durante, or anything that we need to see!
