Golden Amber

Amber Jewelry, beautiful jewelry with this unique stone.

Amber was once given to loved ones to bring healing, luck and longevity to the wearer, roman gladiators adorned their weapons and shields with amber and believed that it would protect them in battle, and legend says that amber was golden tears of the gods which fell into the sea and solidified. Today jewelry designers use amber to make exquisite and unique pieces from this interesting stone.

Amber occurs in a variety of different colors, not only the usual yellow-orange-brown that you associate with the colour amber itself, it can range from a whitish color, pale yellow or gold to a dark brown and almost black. The more uncommon colors include blue amber, green amber and red amber (known as cherry amber) they are rare and highly sort after. When amber is used in jewelry it is usually transparent yellow, reddish-brown or a amber colour.

Although amber is considered to be a gem, it is not a crystalline mineral, amber is a wholly organic material derived from the fossilized resin of extinct species of pine trees. The sticky resin that oozed out of the pine trees often caught small insects such as spiders, ants, bees and small moths, other plant material and other small objects became entrapped in the path of the flowing resin, and they became fossilized over a long period of time, between 10 and 100 million years ago. The trees and their resins became covered with sediment and over millions of years the resin hardens into amber as we know it as today.

For thousands of years amber has been made into all types of jewelry, but today it has become valued primarily for the astounding array of fossils trapped inside. (DNA) can be extracted from the trapped fossilized organisms and compared with that of its modern day counterparts. ” Remember Jurassic park the move”.

Although deposits of amber occur throughout the world, the Dominican republic, Mexico, Alaska, Canada, Burma and Borneo. The most valuable amber comes from the Baltic region.

Amber has had a amazing history, in 1712 the use of amber culminated with the completion of a entire banquet room made of amber panels for King Frederick I of Prussia, who passed it on to his son on his death bed in 1716. then this was presented to the Czar Peter the great to commemorate Prussia’s alliance with Russia. The wall panels were then sent to St Petersburg where they were packed up and not seen for 24 years. It wasn’t till Catherine the great that the amber panels appeared again in what was known as the amber room, It was then the largest work of jeweled art ever made. It was finally set up in the palace at Tsarskoye Selo in 1770.

It covered 55 square meters and contained over six tone of amber as well many other precious gem stones incorporated within the work of art, diamonds, ruby’s, emeralds, onyx, jade to name a few, as well as pure gold leaf, it was then known as the eighth wonder of the world.

The amber room was removed by the occupying German army in world war two. The Nazis stripped the wall panels, packed them into crates and shipped them back to Germany, And like other works of art and treasure looted by Hitler in world war two, they disappeared and were never seen again.

Amber value is based primarily on it's processing into jewelry therefore amber is graded according to its size and beauty, as well as the presence and type of inclusions. It measures 2 to 3 on moh’s scale of hardness, which means it is quite a soft stone. Amber should not be placed in a ultra sonic jewelry cleaner as it may damage the stone and it should be stored in a pouch on its own to avoid chipping on other harder pieces of jewelry.

As a jewelry designer, I personally love working with amber, with its rich history and the fact that every piece of jewelry is unique and no two pieces are exactly the same. So the next time you come across this unique stone have a good look, you might fall in love with it too.
