I was inspired by the unique regional history and situation of Idar-Oberstein, Germany, the gem centre of Europe. Idar-Oberstein has a history of working with gemstones going back over 500 years. The first major activities started when miners found amethyst and agate in the area around the small towns of Idar and Oberstein in the late 14th century.
