Peter Vermandere - Idar Oberstein

Destination ‘Mandelstein'

I have written about the possibility of getting a “commercialistical” gemstone overdose when you visit Idar-Oberstein. As an antidote I have been searching stones myself. It is some kind of going back to one’s roots: I still feel the same excitement when finding a nice stone as when I did when I was a kid. It didn’t matter whether it was on a trip to Cap-Blanc-Nez or Chaumont-le-Bois. It could just as well happen when I was hammering up the rubble that was left over from my father’s sculptures.
