A Day at the Museum

My son has a friend who is on a university exchange program in Frankfurt, Germany. She visited the Museum Idar-Oberstien.

The sign on the front says Mineralien Edelstein Schmuck meaning Mineral, Gemstone and Jewellery. I love that-Schmuck means jewellery!

Fountain pen, inkwell, letter opener, wax seal stamp

Crystal city scape


These are supposed to be the largest cameos in the world!

I've always had a fascination with Cameos

They always have a story to tell

Carved from Agate and Obsidian


Opal and on the right Aquamarine and Feldspar

Malachite and Rock Crystal

Tourmaline - the smaller pieces on the right are Watermelon Tourmaline

This concludes the first part of our tour. Part two next time.
