ARRESTED displays all of the features that make this material so wonderful. Internal fractures, colour variations and, in this piece, various organic materials arrested in the amber forever.
This material has been used by the Chinese to make jewellery since around 200BCE. They believe that it is a symbol of courage and bravery and that it contains the soul of a tiger.
Burmite is a resin which has been formed during periods when mountains have been forced upward - the resultant high pressure and temperatures alter the structure of the resin and create the fascinating internal fractures and waves. These are not faults, rather a reflection of the process that has created this gorgeous material.
Hand carved, contemporary drop pendant made from AMBER. This is a striking pendant that is all about the lovely material and its internal structure and colour variation.
