Since the ancient times Amber has been a mysterious substance - always alive and constantly changing, similar to our human existence. In a way the theory tends to lag behind the processes of nature, for a long time we felt a lack of literature on Baltic Amber. Most of the existing books written on Amber subject were dedicated to scientific research, geology or history while a short, simple and up-to-date handbook did not exist.
Altruistic goal to spread the word and educate people has generously rewarded us since the process of writing this book has enriched our own knowledge and delivered a joy of creation. We hope this handbook will become a source of information not only for eternal amber admirers, but also an interesting reading for the novices.
