Has anyone ever seen TB ambers with a matt finish, like the retired sand beads ?
I've been to a LD last weekend and she had two ambers like that. The colour was a nice caramel sunset and looked very pretty. She told me, that these had been in a ooak-amber-set.
Sorry, no pic as I didn't buy one (.....yet Wink )

Thanks for the pic, Kathleen. You have some gorgeous ambers there Very Happy

The one in the shop was lovely, but really tiny, the other one had a nice hexagonal cut (can't get it out of my mind),
maybe I should go for that ? Wink

YES, you should! I would love some matte ones but may resign myself to trying to get non-Troll ones, not having much luck getting the real thing.

I think I have one, it's the one left of Thor's hammer in this pic.
But maybe not... It's not really satiny, more waxy, but very natural, it's one of my favourite ambers.

You always have such beautiful ambers, and I always like how you arrange them. That is a beautiful photo.

Agree Your ambers are absolutely stunning, MMP Very Happy

I think, the one I've seen is not milky or natural matt, but has been treated somehow to get that matt finish.
Will post a pic asap. I can see it in a pale blue and brown combo, maybe together with the new autumn beads bounce

It may also be that at one point in its long history of becoming the temperature was very high. I have a chunk of amber (not for a bracelet) that looked a bit like Fuzzyfeet´s left amber (which I adore Love ) after our last move (the container got very hot somewhere between Africa and Southeastern Europe). Or it may be that it was not polished but left original ? Anyway, Fuzzyfeet, that is one seriously beautiful amber Smile

Keep the ambers coming, I love all these pics Very Happy
Fuzzyfeet, all your ambers are gorgeous! The one in the middle would have been my choice too.

Michelle, the one I've seen has the same finish as your's.
Maybe they've tried something new at TB's?

Interesting, now who is going to try putting an amber in the oven ?

It's been waiting for me patiently in the shop and here it is Jump

Matt ambers? UPDATED WITH PICS ON PAGE 2 Chestnut007


It has a lovely chestnut colour and although it has this matt finish it shows some sparkling from inside.

For comparsion pictured here with a regular production amber:
