    this what REAL amber looks like and what it is all about

    so, if a piece like this in ISMAILOVO at the VERNISSAGE is being offered to you for a few thousand rubles, you can be sure it is a fake. The amber might be real. and so is the fly or spider. But most probably it is melted down amber powder from a factory and a common fly that was around annoying the workers. the REAL stuff does not make it out to there. onto the trestle tables of the -snake oil- sellers.

    Not strictly true, I have bought some very good genuine Amber in the Baltic States..............

    But, I also have a set of Amber cufflinks with perfectly formed baby Skorpions inside! Too good to be true, but I knew that at time of purchase!

    PS. Thank the Heavens that I was not born a rampaging Taurus!

    Could that be used as a case for defence in a court of law?
