Cherry Amber Collection
The oldest type of cherry amber was found in Burma and is at least 350 million years old. In general, it is usually found around the Baltic Sea area in the deepest layers 600-900 feet below the surface. Cherry Amber is the oldest variety of amber. It has a deep red color, and is very translucent with few inclusions. Cherry amber was deposited deep within the Earth. These deposits are very thin, rarely measuring over ¼ inch thick. This adds to the difficulty of mining this stone. Finding stones large enough for designer jewelry are a rarity, therefore cherry amber is a gem that is very desirable in fashion today. Great attention and care must be taken in the production of jewelry using cherry amber stones. It is the most challenging of amber colors to produce jewelry with. It is hard to find matching stones for earrings and strands of beads, etc. Sets are very rare and exclusive.
The history of amber begins about 90 million years ago in lush green forests in the region of modern day Northern Europe. Trees in these regions produced an aromatic resin, used for protection against woodpeckers, fungus and bark-eating insects. This resin would slowly cascade covering the bark of the tree entrapping organic debris and sometimes live insects along the way. Nearly 40 different species of trees produced this protective resin, accounting for the numerous colors of amber today.
Over millions of years, this golden resin produced by pre-historic trees accumulated in many layers in the soil below. With the onset of The Great Ice Age, these forests perished, the soil froze and the fossilization process began creating deposits of beautiful amber. After The Great Ice, melted glaciers flowed on top of the amber deposits, forming the Baltic and North Seas. Due to this geological occurrence, amber found its new home in the sea. The gem spent many thousands of years below 100 feet of sand at the sea bottom. After violent sea storms, various lumps of amber would separate and float among the waves, eventually reaching the shore to be discovered by man. The Aisti people were the first to pick up amber lumps along the Baltic shores 25,000 years ago. Aisti believe that amber was pieces of the Sun that had fallen down to the earth and cherished it as a gift from the heavens.
