Green amber


#1

Hello, I don’t post often but am wondering if any of you know a
source for GREEN amber? Someone else also posted this question but I
didn’t see any responses. If anyone knows anything about the green
amber in general it would be great to hear your comments.

Thanks in advance,
gaylen

Greetings: Would be interesting to find out more. I read some
documentation during the past few months that stated that there is NO
naturally occurring green amber. There is the gold/golden and a very
rare blue amber stated that authority.

All, Not too sure about the ‘green’ amber but recently ran into a
friend of a friend and he showed me a very large bag of beautiful
blue amber. I couldn’t believe my eyes. The stuff was super.
Haven’t approached him as yet for some but intend to do so in the
near future. Haven’t talked about origin yet or stuff like that.
Will report back if there in anything of interest.

Cheers from Don at The Charles Belle Studio in SOFL where simple
elegance IS fine jewelry!

I’ve heard of green (occurring naturally) and the most rare being a
shade of purple And, I’m not going to claim that I’m an expert.
Being of Eastern European descent, I will state that amber has only
recently become something popular in the USA, before that, only the
Eastern Europeans wore it, and treasured it.

What is called green amber is a greenish yellow amber sold with the
skin intact. The top is cabbed, usually freeform. Often the skin
is darkened with some foreign substance - looks like paint to me.

The resulting stone has a definite green cast, compared to honey or
cognac amber because the disk like inclusions stand out against the
dark background. Some of the interesting green amber is also
treated when being annealed to have starburst rays. I was told by a
Polish amber dealer that he did it by banging the warm stone
smartly on a hard surface, thus causing the disks to radiate from
the center of the cut stone.

This green amber has been widely available at Tucson. The local
shows have shown it exclusively set in jewelry. The material comes
from Poland or Lithuania.

Watch out for artificial colouring (orange, blue) on the surface,
this is quite popular a few years ago in the Far East.

In case you missed the e-mail address given a couple days ago go to :
http://ambericwest.com/ He has both green and blue amber, some very
costly some not. But the site is well worth looking at, as is the
site the came from: www.sweetcom/. Both are
worth viewing. ambericwest also gives a great background and history
on the beautiful pieces of nature. While anyone viewing
seeetgemstones will understand the name. just passing thru.
