Souvenirs from Amber Museum

Amber jewelry along with amber sculptures as well as amber objects – these are just some of the exhibits from the Amber Museum in Cracow and products offered in Boruni gallery, which recently you can "buy" on specially prepared postcards.

In 2013 he was accused of tax evasion in Russia. As a wanted notice was issued for him, he found shelter in Poland. Though he does not know how this story is going to end, he has decided to try to continue running his amber business here.

What’s the Future of Amber Raw Material?

Contrary to expectations, the Amberif trade fair didn’t provide an answer to the question about the nearest future of the amber market. Though, the fair has shown that the market is really saturated both with the raw material and products.

Amber – a Year Later

In January 2014 the producers were paralysed by the prices of raw material going through the roof, as well as by the dramatic lack of the raw material. Today the prices have fallen by half, and there is a lot of raw material on the market, though its quality is not always good enough.

2014 turned out to be very good for the Lithuanian amber industry, and in 2015 amber mining from the deposits located in the Curonian spit is meant to begin. The condition of that industry will be put on test for the first time this year at the Amber Trip trade fair that will be held in Vilnius over March 18th and 21st

Amber. Around the World

Nine jewelery artists and more than fifty design specimens using  a variety of styles and techniques with Baltic, Dominican and Sumatran amber - make the announcement of the exhibition Amber: Around the World, which will have its premiere at the Amber Museum and Amberif fair in Gdansk, Poland.

The tremendous size and cultural diversity of the Indian market certainly can put off amber jewellery producers who are focused on China and are not looking for new outlets. In Neeraj Kayathwal's opinion, however, now is the right time to invest there. Why?

From the Chinese perspective, the global amber market seems to look different than from the European perspective. Mostly because their perspective is a lot wider...

Although she has been participating in amber trade fairs for year, it wasn’t until this year that she started using amber in her work. At the Amberif trade fair her collection was entirely sold out as soon as the trade fair was opened. She will have another attempt at presenting it to the public at the Ambermart trade fair. What are we going to see?

The Amber Museum in Jarosławiec

It’s not another boring museum – this is the slogan advertising the Amber Museum in Jarosławiec. It is the place where the decorations, pictures, smells, sounds, and, of course exhibits, tell an interesting story about amber.

Amber is a fascinating topic, though you need to know how to get information about it into people's hands. Or perhaps even their subconsciousness...? Max Kwiatkowski, the originator of a private Amber Museum in Jarosławiec has found the way.

On amber in the Ukraine and Russia

The speeches about current decisions and events on the amber raw material market, given by representatives from Russia and the Ukraine at the closed meetings of the World Amber Council have been increasingly popular in the last two years. Is it a chance to obtain amber from their local mines?

Where Does Russian Amber End Up?

Following the Russian declarations, it was supposed to fulfil the needs of the producers from Kaliningrad in the first place, and the excess was meant to go on the market where everybody was going to have an opportunity to purchase it. The current situation, however, can be briefly summarised as: it was meant to be wonderful, but it ended up as usual...

Although many people have heard about The Battle of Grunwald, sculptured in Baltic amber, and many have surely seen it, only a few people know who the authors are. Why do they remain in the shadows?
