Amber At The Faire

At the Renaissance Faire, the Amber Shop,  I think almost all the amber was from the Baltic.

I first realized what amber was when my grandmother gave me a faceted cherry amber necklace that I think had been my great grandmother's given to her half sister Mary when she went to New Zealand  and then posted back to my grandmother.  So I would say early 20th Century.

None of the amber in this shop was of a cherry colour.  They had shades of traditional brown amber, green amber and the butterscotch amber, but no cherry.

It was lovely to look at all the styles and creations

I think the amber tree is amazing.
