Baltic Cognac Amber Brooches
Baltic Amber began life as resin from trees in forested areas of the Baltic region, including Russia and Poland.
The amber began to solidify and was transported by rivers to the Baltic Sea where it can now be found washed up along the coastline. This Cognac amber is a clear variety of amber and tiny inclusions of preserved plants, insects, water or gas bubbles can be seen within the stones. The transparency and the inclusions give the stone a wonderful depth. Amber has been treasured in many cultures and communities throughout history for its warm vibrant colour and special meaning. We have chosen this type of amber for the beautiful contrast between the warm fiery stone and the cool metallic lustre of the silver.
