This is a new item - very unique. You will not find these any other place. The Baltic amber are shaped into PERFECT spheres. When I say perfect, I mean perfect. Please note that while all the other pages have amber from the Dominican Republic, this page has amber from the Baltic area. Bottom line, everything on this page is Baltic amber.

We now have a new page of weekly Baltic amber specials - real sale prices! Check it out.
