The art of gemstone cutting and the passion to collect minerals

Hello, my name is Aaron and I am 19 years old. Welcome to my online shop FILOPPI and have fun with my story: Because my second home is in South Tyrol, I have always been there every holiday as a child. With my family I went on many hikes and mountain tours, which meant that I became very close to nature. In the beginning, I first collected everything I liked: sticks, beautiful roots, colorful leaves, from time to time a stone that glittered a bit and much more. Collecting in itself was just fun for me. Back in Germany, I soon began to collect in a more structured way, especially coins and stamps. All of this flattened out a bit as there was more to do at school and it became more stressful. When career orientation began in the 10th grade, my father encouraged me to do an internship with a friend of his, a gem cutter. Although at first only a little watching was planned, I was fascinated by the urge for perfectionism and the craftsmanship of crystals, which are such a noble and magical material, so much that I started directly with an apprenticeship and soon after bought my own grinding machine. As luck would have it, my gemstone-cutting mentor was also a member of the local association of mineral collectors and had several showcases full of beautiful minerals, which I sometimes walked past every day on the way to the workshop. This reawakened the passion somewhat suppressed by the school and when he took me on a collection tour and I met the president of the association, it had happened. The enthusiasm was back, stronger than ever and from then on I tried to get somewhere every day off where I could look for minerals. Meanwhile, more and more boxes of minerals are piling up with me and the collection is growing. Although it is difficult for me, I have now decided to sell some of my self-found pieces to finance further collection trips and the necessary equipment. Likewise, I start selling gemstones cut by me to see if I can make this fascination my profession. In addition, I plan to offer jewelry in the near future, in which I can combine my fascinations minerals, stone processing and craftsmanship.
