Jewellery from Jugendstil to Art Déco
Fashionable jewellery conceived for everyday use during the first three decades of the 20th century ranged from the simple to the extravagant, but it was always original and creative. All of the exhibits come from the previously never-before shown Ratz-Coradazzi Collection. The collector was only 7-years-old when she spent her allowance on her first piece of Jugendstil jewellery. This passion has lasted to the present day, the only difference being that the objects have become ever more precious and the collection has long attained international status.

Lisa Rave. Europium
Europium is one of the elements, called "rare earths". Although it is named after the continent of Europe it was not found yet on this continent. The phosphorescent features of Europium cannot be imitated artificially, and its radiating brilliance is used as a marker of authenticity on Euro banknotes. It is also used for displays of phones and computers. An international consortium plans to start a deep see mining on the ground of the Pacific Ocean around Papua New Guinea. Since colonial times it is called Bismarcksee. Part of the technology will be delivered by a German company.
