Mined in Sicily, Burma, Romania, Poland, and Mexico, amber is actually the fossilized resin of ancient trees, and is among the oldest stones used for human adornment. It has been called the gold of the sea because the most extensive deposits are found along Baltic shores. The Greeks, to whom amber represented the tears Apollo shed as he was banished from Olympus, called amber "electron" because of its tendency to attract lightweight objects when rubbed.

        Comments about Amber Rose Intaglio Bracelet:

        I initially bought the earrings. Was very pleased with them and decided to buy the bracelet. Very happy that I did so. Another quality and unique product from National Geographic. I have my eye on buying a very pretty necklace down the road.

        Engraved gems were one of the most sought-after luxury items in the ancient world, and with great luxury comes the demand for great imitations. Roman artisans became skilled in using pasta vitra, or glass paste, to simulate gemstones, and the effect was no less brilliant. They could then carve images into the glass in a process called intaglio, or they could use glass paste and lost-wax casting methods to produce consistent results.

        Amber captivated ancient cultures long before its origins were understood. Some thought it was sunshine made solid. Others believed it was the fallen tears of the gods. It wasn’t until the Roman author Pliny wrote his Historia Naturalis in A.D. 77 that it was thought of as a plant material. As the fossilized resin of 40-million-year-old trees, amber is one of the only gems that isn’t a mineral. In Baltic cultures, it’s a traditional gift for a bride from her parents, and is passed down through generations of women. This necklace showcases smooth amber in a range of its natural, untreated hues, from milky honey white to opaque brown-black.

        This handsome handcrafted bracelet combines traditional Eastern medicine with one of the most significant mantras in Buddhism for an accent that is as meaningful as it is beautiful. Saying, or even reading, the words Om mani padme hum is believed to invoke the Buddha of Compassion, called Avalokitesvara in Sanskrit or Chenrezig in Tibetan. Some traditions within Eastern medicine use copper and brass for their purported power to alleviate arthritis and increase circulation. These two beliefs intertwine in a hand-hammered copper, brass, and white metal cuff. The Tibetan script for Om mani padme hum is overlaid on the face of the bracelet.
