Traditional Lithuanian Souvenir - Nice Handmade Picture With Wooden Frame And Decorated With Genuine Baltic Amber!

To understand amber souvenirs it is first important to understand exactly what amber is. Simply put amber is fossilized resin from trees. Because of this, it is common for pieces of moss, pine needles, insects, and lichens to be found trapped within the resin, often times having been there for millions of years. Even though amber is not mined as most precious stones, it is still considered beautiful and a durable gem.

One of the things that makes amber so interesting is the long history of theories conjured up by alchemists and philosophers. For example, during the Roman era in the 1st Century, it was thought that amber was created from lynx urine, with the dark amber being the product of the male and light colored amber coming from the female. Another fascinating theory was that the rays of the setting sun somehow became congealed in the sea, which was then cast upon the shore in the form of amber.

However, by 240 BC, an astrologer discovered that amber had many of the same characteristics and properties of gemstones. He then found that a tree by the name of Lynx, which grows in Liguria, was actually responsible for the creation of this substance. He also found that while the beautiful amber or gold color was most common, other colors were formed to include yellow, green blue, violet, and black. These rarer colors today are highly sought after, with the green and blue being the most valuable. Amber quickly became a popular choice for jewelry. Along with its healing powers, amber has radiant color and durability.

Remember, no two pieces of amber are alike, each is unique and distinct.
