About Amber
It's origins, mysteries and beauty....

Ancients referred to amber as "sea gold" because of it's golden color and because much is found on the seacoast particularly the Baltic Sea where once huge forests stood.
Actually amber ranges in color from a lemony cream color to almost a black with green or golden inclusions
Such beauty none could imagine coming from tree sap, especially from a long extinct pine species.
The sap would run and in its journey would pick up bits of flowers, bark and insects - some in entirety.
The oceans rose and carried the hardened sap into its depths. It sometimes rises to the top during storms or other ocean bottom disturbances.
Beautiful nature amber pendant with sterling front and back. See Main Catalog

There are materials such as plastics and copal that are made to resemble amber, but true amber has a pine scent when burned and it becomes electromagnetic when rubbed. Sometimes smaller pieces of amber were pressed together to make larger items such as cigarette holders.
