A long, long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away ... a little girl sat with her far too stylish grandmother, held in her hands a necklace of Baltic Amber beads and was told a story about the Amber Room ...
From that day on I was hooked on Amber. I imagined being in a room full of Amber - to me it looked like the sun exploded. I imagined going to the Baltic coast and collecting pieces of Amber myself & lamented the fact that grandmother's sister & her family no longer lived there. I imagined having an Amber necklace of my own.
Maybe one day I'll get to visit the re-constructed Amber Room.
One day I'll get to the side of the Baltic coast that has Amber washing on its shores after a storm, and not be stuck in a storm on the Baltic Sea dreaming of finding Amber at the next mooring.
As to having an Amber necklace of my own - this wish did come true, several times over :D
Somewhere under all this Baltic Sea water is whole lot of Amber ...
Voyage of discovery ... haven't found any Amber though. Next time!
Amber found washed out on the beach in Latvia.
Variety of Baltic Amber - cleaned & polished - from mossy green to sunshine yellow, from orange to cherry.
