Reviews

Amber has been one of humankind’s favorite decorations and personal adornment throughout the ages. People have always been attracted to and fascinated by these beautiful fossil resins that may contain trapped insects and plants from an earlier geologic time.
This book explains how amber formed and describes its geologic setting in the Baltic region and elsewhere. The author explore the role amber plays in the folklore of many cultures, and provide practical advice on how to care for amber jewelry, how to use it for lapidary purposes, and how to detect fake amber.
Profusely illustrated, The Amber Book is a basic source of knowledge for anyone who appreciates amber, including jewelry buyers and art collectors.
