Deutsches Edelsteinmuseum

The Idar-Zentrum (Diamond Exchange) building in Idar is home to the German Museum of Precious Stones. It is impossible not to be dazzled by the thousands of stones from all over the world on display here! The Glyptothek provides an extremely fascinating insight into 6 000 years of gem-cutting and present day engraving art.
