I've been working hard on this article for the past year and I'm overjoyed to see it complete. I'm really proud of this one because I pieced it together for so many disparate sources yet it came together clearly and linearly. I will admit that this is also the longest article I've written, about a half an hour's read so maybe get comfy on the couch or in the bath with a favorite beverage. I hope you enjoy this journey into the world of Bohemia and the cutting of the famous Czech Garnets.

Really good historical article, I would take issue with a few of your translations, but that would be mere nit-picking. This shines a light on a most interesting aspect of the trade in a most interesting country.

justinkprim,

Loved the article. While I'm not capable of catching translation errors, the suggestion of reading it in the bath on a computer set me back (unless you meant to print it out) :)

Thanks everyone for the positive words. Also I put a bath on my roof with a tiled platform across it to hold my laptop. Easy reading in the bath :)
