Sterling silver vintage amber brooch
- Measurement: 10.8mm x 41.8mm
This is a very attractive Bar Pin. It is set in the center with a beautiful rich colored amber. The bar pin is 1.5 inches long in a classic Victorian design. This fine example of Victorian art is in excellent original condition with the pin working crisp and clean. I believe this pin could also be used as a tie bar if so desired. It makes a handsome statement and can be worn by either male or female. A truly fine example.
Amber is actually not a stone, but rather amorphous, fossilized tree sap. Amber comes from the fossilized resin that lived tens of millions of years ago in trees. It is normally a golden yellow to golden orange, and ranges from transparent to semi translucent. Amber was one of the first substances used for personal adornment. Decorated pieces of amber have been found in remains from the Stone Age.
