  • Amber is a fossilized tree resin that has taken millions of years to form.
  • Occasionally, amber will contain remnants of plant matter or insects that were first trapped and preserved millions of years ago.
  • Amber comes in many shades and colors, although the most common are cognac, honey, green, lemon yellow, ivory and cream/yellow.
  • Amber is lightweight and because it is an organic substance, each piece is unique.
  • Some cultures believe that Baltic amber contains medicinal properties, due to it's high content of succinic acid.
  • Many different cultures over the centuries have developed their own myths and legends to explain the nature of amber.
  • Amber from the Baltic region of Europe is considered the best quality because of its high succinic acid content.
  • Amber was an important commodity for ancient cultures, a substance they valued greatly. It was traded around the globe as far back as almost 10,000 years ago.

Today amber is crafted into beautiful pieces of jewelry for us to enjoy.

When a work lifts your spirits and inspires bold and noble thoughts in you, do not look for any other standard to judge by: the work is good, the product of a master craftsman.
