First pictures of the beautiful city of Gdansk. The Old Town Section was beautiful. We spent two days walking, sitting by the water and shopping. The weather was lovely. We have visited Poland before but the amount of Amber here was amazing.

I had a wonderful weekend and I would love to go back someday to spend more time in Gdansk.

Fabulous collection!!! I'm in awe and would love to be able to see these beauties irl. I really love your knowledge of ambers!! I think I may have a few green ambers, perhaps you could help me identify some of mine if I post pics. I love you

Wow, you found some awesome ambers! I would love to find one of those wide ones! Were there a lot of ambers in that city?

Amber vendors and shops were everywhere. Saturday there were street markets of amber. I was overwhelmed by choice. Even DH bought two chunks Laughing

Wow, Carla! I absolutely NEED to go to Gdansk (and come back broken Two cents Crying or Very sad)! I've been searching everywhere for a barrel shaped amber, perhaps I'd find one there (doesn't have to be Troll!).
What a wonderful haul and yes, those are the real greenish ambers with their natural hue, not those artificial looking treated ones! Wonderful pics, also of the town, TFS!

Fabulous photos Carla, TFS. Gdansk looks very interesting and those ambers are amazing. Your anniversary nugget necklace is spectacular, I love it! My parents will be visiting Poland mid-year, I really must clue Mum up. She is not at all averse to shopping - or amber. Very Happy

Wow, lots of Amber envy here! Those beads are amazing. Can I ask how the prices compared to Troll? I am trying to collect enough Amber for a bracelet but the really nice OOAK ambers are a bit pricey and I am finding it slow going. I wonder if a little trip to Gdansk might be in order with my lovely husband for our anniversary next year!
