Product Description

Amber has been considered a highly valued gem for ions. It has been found throughout antiquity from ancient relics to artwork and jewelry such as found in the famed Egyptian Pharaoh Tutankhamun’s tomb artifacts, to ancient South American masks to European animal figurines. The most famous Amber and considered the 8th wonder of the world, is the Russian Amber Room located in the Catharine Palace, now a reconstruction from the original 1701 version. At one time the original Amber Room measured 33 feet by 33 feet equaling 196 feet total wall length. The original Amber Room was dismantled and stolen by the German Nazis in 1941 and brought to Königsberg (renamed Kaliningrad) for reconstruction and display. After the war, it was generally believed to have been destroyed and hasn’t been found yet. The lost original Amber Room is one of the great mysteries yet to be solved.
