    Default Where to find amber?

    Fellow DR1 members,

    I did not know which forum would be the right one to post this question.
    Where one could find quality, unmounted amber in a mass production on the lowest price?
    My friend who's expert on jewelry and suppliers is on vacation in EU and I can't seem to reach her.
    Any info would be appreciated!

    Default On The Touristica

    Well past most of the other little shops and houses that sell amber you will come across quite a steep bend in the road to the left, the road is now dropping quite steeply down towards Santiago. On your left is a little blue and white shop, on your right another both selling amber. I prefer the family on the left. I just bought an uncut piece for a friend of mine that I took back to the UK. It was the size of a cricket ball and cost $1000 pesos.

    Don't haggle too hard - the miners live very dangerous lives with little to show for it.
