Description
 
This publication was meant to describe and illustrate the final products of finished amber. It was not an easy task considering the great number of amber craftsmen and artists in Gdansk alone. The author points out some trends in the former and present amber craft. For many years she has been advocating the use of natural amber, unchanged by heat treatment.  Therefore, readers will not see here any ornaments made of pressed amber, except for one photo, showing the smallest beads in the world.  Neither will they find products from improved amber, even though the latter has been accepted by the International Amber Association as equal to natural amber.
We have also attempted to acquaint the readers with the origin and history of amber, to describe organic inclusions in amber, its properties and deposits, as well as to list fossil resins other than Baltic amber.
