A Very Special Carved Amber

Today I received a very special gift, something that before today I could only ever dream of owning.

That special gift is a Trollbeads Giant Carved Amber Rose.

Words can not describe how lucky I feel to have such a beautiful piece in my collection, nor how grateful I am.

What follows are some photos of this stunning bead …

The inclusions within this bead really are beautiful. It was quite hard to capture, but if you look closely at the first side-on photo, just before the 6 o’clock position, there is what appears to be a large petal of some kind which appears to go right through the bead, finishing at the 5 o’clock position. Within the bead there is also what looks like a very very tiny spider or mite, which is not visible to the naked eye but can be seen with a jewellers loupe. These inclusions make it even more special and act as a reminder that amber is a piece of the earths history.

The carved roses are so delicate, and credit must go to the person who hand carved this bead.

This bead will always have a treasured place in my collection and I cannot say thank you enough!

Elsa.
