Post_19-9-2014

Nowadays most of us look suspiciously at various consumer goods that have high prices or continuously get more expensive. One such commodity is Baltic amber, the fossilized resin that its age exceeds 25 million years … Read more about how amber is formed here.

Who wouldn’t like to hold an amber efhantro komboloi! What are the reasons for the constant increase in the price of amber? Can we get genuine amber products at affordable prices today?

Given the fact, that Amber is a source of electrical energy, truly beneficial to the human body, while its deposits are very limited, the demand of amber has really taken off. The prices per gram, especially in very old pieces (i.e. Kahraman amber) have reached in the Greek market, at current month the price of 150 €/gram,  while in China they surpassed 400 €/gram.

It is anticipated that amber prices will rise even more because demandin amber  is increasing and a lot of people choose to invest in this material. As in the past was gold, so at present,  amber is not just a luxury asset,  but a very good investment! All the above most certainly concern pure solid amber rather than amber powders, pressed amber or its imitations.

Nevertheless, we can find gradations in prices of natural amber, which make it quite affordable. Amber prices are determined by size, shape and color. The larger and smoother pieces are more expensive and vice versa. The smaller pieces are more affordable, as well as these with more irregular shapes,and the ones which have been recently excavated .
