Greenery summer: peridot

After they had led a rather shadowy existence, the reputation of peridots gradually began to change: in the high mountains of Pakistan, at an altitude of over 4000 metres, some very fine, brilliant gold-green crystals were discovered. Today, the peridot is among the most coveted coloured gemstones worldwide. Its seductive, lush green hues and clarity have made it a strong competitor of the tourmaline and the emerald. The peridot is one of the very few gemstones which come in one colour only. This stone displays the most beautiful green tones of the summer: its range includes olive shades, the famous gold-green of the stones from Pakistan, a clear yellow green, a light lime green and the bluish green typical of stones from Burma. Very small but beautiful yellow-green stones come from China. And the best thing about this gemstone is that its colour will flatter the complexion of any woman! However, these fantastic stones do have one major disadvantage: all of them are very rare. Fortunately, I have a few remarkable peridots in my treasure chamber …

‘Tour de Wild’ on japanese TV

It’s not only German television that has shown interest in the ‘Tour de Wild': a few days ago the Japanese singer and TV star Saori Yuki came on a visit of discovery together with a TV team. She herself is a great gemstone fan and really got her money’s worth in my home town of Idar-Oberstein!

We started off in the raw stone depot in my cellar. There, my guests learned that the process that leads to a sparkling, many-faceted beauty always begins with an unprepossessing piece of rock. In my cutting shop, Saori Yuki had a chance to see that the essential factors in the creation of a consummate end product are genuine craftsmanship and precision.

After that we went to my treasure chamber, where the most precious and rarest gemstones on this Earth sparkle endlessly in various colours and facets. And my guests’ eyes lit up even more in my treasure chamber, when I showed them the shocking pink imperial topaz which is said once to have belonged to Marie-Antoinette …

Auf der Spur der Steine in Idar-Oberstein

TV documentary “Auf der Spur der Steine in Idar-Oberstein: Constantin Wild shows us his Idar-Oberstein.

2 June 2017 at 20.15 and 9 June 15:15 on SWR Television and for the next year at the ARD Mediathek (stream) 

Jens Hübschen sets out to retrace the history of the stones, in the gemstone world of Idar-Oberstein in the rocky Nahe region.

I have said it time and again: Idar-Oberstein is one of the most beautiful places in Germany. And gemstone fans are particularly likely to agree with that. After all, my home town was the cradle of the gemstone industry! A team from the German TV station SWR recently set out to retrace that fascinating history. For what began centuries ago with the first agates, found in volcanic rock, and rapidly brought forth the very best gemstone cutters and goldsmiths, has also managed to make a successful transition into the modern age. But how is that possible? In this documentary, I open the doors of my treasure chamber and chat a little about my fascinating world of gemstones – and about my beloved Idar-Oberstein.

Why not look in? 9.6.2017 at 15.15 on SWR or stream it to your Computer or Tablet.
