Ylämaa - home of colourful gems
In the Gem Village, with its museum and gem shops, you can watch how spectrolite is cut into jewellery. More gems can be admired during the International Gem Show 1st to 3rd of July.
Joining the guided tour at the Gem Village and Gem Museum will give you the chance to experience the вЂњtouchвЂќ of spectrolite with your own hands. You will also find out how the gems are made into jewellery and other art objets.
On a historic note, a visit to the Pätäri House Museum will reward anyone intrigued by YlämaaвЂ™s past. Local farm products and handicrafts are available at the producersвЂ™ market in the Gem Village on Fridays at 3вЂ“5pm throughout the summer. View the beautiful Ylämaa countryside from the signposted Stone & Nature paths.
