My husband, János Koós-Varju and me, we got to know - the Mátra's "semi precious" gemstone sites, and learned to cut and polish those, have bought the necessary machines and equipments. His basic education is mechatronic technician and he is a Power Engineering engineer. I have diploma at the Faculty of "Tourism and Hotel" and I am a village host. I love tourism as a host and also as a traveler. And yes, we love gemstones and the nature too!
