Going on a rock-hunting excursion in Rheinhessen and Hunsrück is a sensual journey into the beautiful landscape. At the same time it is a time-travel to long bygone geological eras. Imagining the past and connecting it to today's landscape is the key to identifying the right places and find the hidden treasures of Rheinhessen and Hunsrück.
At the end of an excursion, the finds are washed and examined. Amidst the finds those few special pieces are chosen, which thanks to their colours and structures seem suited for transforming them into art. Their suitability can rarely determined at the first glance. Therefore intuition plays an important role. One has to get a feeling for the stone and try to "read" and understand its properties and singularities.
The rocks then are cut and polished by a professional gem cutter.
