| AMBER AND SILVER JEWELRY FROM POLAND|
What is amber ?
Amber, one of nature's most beautiful gems, is fossilized resin from ancient trees. Resin that produced the amber accumulated in the region of the Baltic Sea between 40,000,000 to 60,000,000 years ago. Amber is lightweight with visible inclusions consisting of air bubbles, plant material and occasionally a perfectly preserved insect fossil. From the Stone Age man's first appreciation of amber as a glowing icon of the sun's rays, to amber's current appeal, the illustrious title of Golden Gem of the Ages is well deserved. Believed to have metaphysical properties, amber is said to provide health, good fortune and spiritual healing. Amber is soft and warm to the touch. A hot knife applied to it will result in the aroma of pine. Amber is organically beautiful, no two pieces are alike, however they can be similarly matched in color. Only the fine Baltic amber is available in wide color range, including cognac, butterscotch, lemon, green, honey and cherry among others.
