Baltic Cognac Amber Brooches
Baltic Amber started its journey as tree resin within the great forests of the Baltic landscapes.
The resin naturally became solid and rivers and streams carried the stones downstream to the Baltic Sea. You can find the amber along the coastlines there. Cognac amber is clear and often small inclusions of preserved plants, insects, water or gas bubbles are present within the stones. This transparent quality and the little inclusions give the stone an attractive depth. Amber has been favoured in several cultures and communities around the world throughout history due to its warm vibrancy and special significance. We like this type of amber for the amazing contrast between the fiery stone and the cool metallic lustre of silver.
