A beautiful sample of Amber Butterscotch from Russia, precisely Kalingrad.
This variety of Amber is famous for its color, a real rarity. Unlike the more common Amber cognac or even the blue, the Amber Butterscotch is appreciated for its creamy yellow and milky white mix that have given it the title of the most sought-after Amber by collectors.

The reason for its distinctive color is due to the presence of millions of tiny bubbles trapped inside the resin from the trees it once lay on. From tests carried out with an electron microscope, it has been shown that Amber Butterscotch is made up of transparent resin and millions of micro bubbles inside which, reflecting the light, return this fantastic milky color.
