Reflecting the warm glow of cognac Baltic amber, the soulful eyes of this Baltic Amber Owl Face Pin are highlighted by the unmistakable sweep of wise brows. Who can resist? Sterling silver. Natural variations will occur.
Unrivaled in craftsmanship, elegance, and style, this extraordinary Baltic Amber Owl Face Pin is a work of art—crafted entirely by hand in sterling silver by a Polish amber artisan. Spectacular amber jewelry, beads, and specimens are curated by our National Museum of Natural History, the world’s preeminent museum and research complex dedicated to inspiring curiosity, discovery and learning about the natural world. Scientists and researchers explore areas of anthropology, ethnology, botany, entomology, invertebrate and vertebrate zoology and the mineral sciences.
Prized since the Stone Age, treasured by ancient civilizations, and coveted by 18th- and 19th-century European monarchs, amber (particularly 40,000-50,000 year-old Baltic amber) is still highly valued for its natural translucence. A glowing organic gemstone (naturally occurring in various shades of brown, yellow, or green), amber is actually the fossilized resin of prehistoric trees. Natural inclusions such as plant life or insects increase its worth.
