Experience the birth of artificial gems when we show you the only high temperature crystal growth lab in the world! As a souvenir, each participant will receive a crystal shard from a melt that was heated to more than 3,000° C – a temperature at which iron is already in a gaseous state. 

Following the presentation (approx. 30 min) and the distribution of the crystals (approx. 15 min), a tour of the high temperature lab will be possible.
