Natural Baltic amber is very attractive, when it is kept as natural amber. There is radiant honey color, yellow, deep brown, red, lemon, cream and even a wonderful white. Natural Amber from the Baltic countries was and is beautiful and extraordinary, full of folklore and history. It still has the fame of the mystic, sacred material of ancient times that carries on. There definitely are still many craftsmen in Baltic countries who keep up this old, honorable tradition.
The Poland Chamber of Commerce writes:
“Natural Baltic Amber – Amber as it comes from nature. It is generally uneven in color. And it is almost always uneven in shape. It comes from the Baltic Region.
Natural Baltic amber is used in high quality fashion jewelry and art creations. It is asymmetrical, not always uniformly colored, sometimes has imperfections and looks like something that would have been shaped by nature and not man.”
Some Baltic amber associations even disqualify manufactures who use approved methods of enhancement but do not declare it. The International Amber Association (http://amber.org.pl) keeps up a struggle for a fair and clear business practice.
