Hello Pat, Thanks for your suggestions. The amber is not sticky or
clouded. Just this split that looks like what happens to your
thumbnail when you ram it against something hard and the edge starts
to separate into layers like mica. Otherwise, the amber is clear.
Do you have any idea what caused the cloudy, sticky surface on your
amber? Exposure to a solvent perhaps? Did the NY person have
anything to say? I don’t want to unintentionally create more
problems. I’ll check my back issues of LJ for the article on amber.
Yeah, the tomatoes are wonderful… sun-warmed, eaten off the vine!
Of course I have to beat the turtles to them. Those amazing critters
literaly climb the tomato vine to reach a ripe fruit! Judy
