Not the Blue one which i posted about a couple of days ago but I managed to get the green amber mesba7 (thanks to Ali). The green amber is not as rare as the blue one but still it’ll feel very welcomed among my collection :)

And one more thing I’m still hunting for the blue amber! πŸ˜‰

Again I thank you Ali. (and Ahmad for letting me use his macro lens).

    Mabruk, Mishary, it is GORGEOUS. I would love some earrings in the green amber – is it available in Kuwait, or only through friends? Mabruk again; you found a lovely treasure.

  7. Mhhm…. may I asked where you bought it? It is definitely beautiful….it looks like amber pieces melted together in some form and way. The one who did this knows his job. A true collectors piece, although it is not the way that green amber comes from the mine.

    Here is a link to natural rough green amber:

    and one to the beads made from it.

  8. Just a second…I don’t want to cause bad feelings, friends.

    Many of these technics to enhance amber have a long tradition in the Baltic’s and it is not considered “cheating” on Mother Nature. Since Roman times this has been a way to get what people want for a price they are willing and able to pay. Therefore many masters used their own technics, like slow heating of amber in liquids or sand or table salt. There is even the story that in the first century Baltic amber was boiled in the fat of a suckling pig. :( (see: Goggle books )

    If you don’t mind industrialized, enhanced and treated amber, and especially if the price is an important criteria: The easily available Baltic amber surely is a beautiful and economic option. And Chinese people have still different ways to make amber from resins that never have seen a tree.

    Only: Although there might be exceptions in Baltic countries, if you want to be sure that you get exclusive natural amber 100 % in it’s original form, “Made by Nature”, each piece an original, not treated in any way, we recommend the rare Dominican Amber….if the price suits your budget, that is. πŸ˜‰

    * If you want NATURAL BLUE AMBER, Dominican amber is your ONLY real choice for good quality.

  9. Oh… just read in this book “Amber: Golden Gem of the Ages” by Patty Rice, page 342, pagabout “Polybern”. This is amber combined with Poyester. Little pieces of amber melted together with Polyester (which can be of different colors).
