Polished Chiapas Chunks
This is the fabled Chiapas amber from the Mayan mines in Chiapas, Mexico. It is fairly difficult to get a hold of and is highly prized for its impressive color and transparency. You can find reds, blues, greens and of course amber colors. This is real color, not like altered Baltic amber. This is quite a find and not seen often! You can do just about anything you want with this amber. My suggestion is for jewelry - the depth of color is seldom seen in any amber from anywhere else!
All of these pieces of amber were hand-polished by Mayan (Tzotzil) Indigenous people. NO machines, tumblers, or etc. were used.
I just picked up a real sharp group of Chiapas chunks that are polished. These are all from a good friend of mine in Mexico that I have know for a while. About 40% of the time the back side is not polished, just the front and sides. These were obviously cut and polished to be made into pendants by a local artist. I managed to get there first and snatched them up. Not only that, but I purchased them at a good price and am passing that on to you.
I only could get a 2 or 3 pounds of the beauty's. So I offer them to you at a smashing price.......... $2 per gram. Minimum order is 50 grams and then by 50 gram increments.
If you want to set some great pieces in silver or gold, this is the stuff to do it with. I have put a lot of pictures as representative samples. No, you go not get to choose, I will just reach in and pick out the weight that you want.
