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.
