Idar-Oberstein
The Essential
Since the Middle Ages, the history of Idar-Oberstein has been linked to the production and sale of precious stones. The profusion of agate, jasper and amethyst deposits made it a centre of cutting and polishing of precious stones. The town's museums, workshops and shops are all devoted to this mineral world.
