Amber Party

Amber is one of the specialties of the Baltic Sea Region. It is ancient tree sap that has been turned to stone over thousands of years.  It can be mined, but also found on beaches after a storm has churned it up.
  Irma Warnsdorf has quite a collection she bought from an Amber store  on Stroget when the owner died.  We had a great time admiring and buying....
 The color ranges from yellow to brown. It is usually transparent and very light weight.
