Another 4 thousand years BC. amber was widely used in everyday life among the inhabitants of the modern Baltic States. Ancient people processed it with their primitive tools, grinding and sawing. In addition to necklaces and jewelry, they carved figurines of people and animals from it. Amber figurines were highly valued outside the Baltic States as well. Later, in Ancient Rome, amber was widely used not only for the manufacture of jewelry, but also for household items (vessels, bowls, flasks). In the Middle Ages up to the 19th century. it was used to make more and more diverse products for personal use (smoking pipes, caskets, lamps). Today, the forgotten tradition has become popular again, and among the gift and souvenir items you can find a wide variety of figurines, candlesticks, clocks, magnets, and more.
It's no secret that amber is used not only for making jewelry. From it, modern master jewelers create various souvenir products and works of art, from keychains to paintings.

Each amber stone is unique due to its internal inclusions and shades, so it is impossible to find the same souvenirs, even if they are made from the same sketch.
