That's what one calls amber in ancient myths. But since the Stone Age, this fossilised resin is much sought after. Both pearls and figures were created from it. One of the oldest sculptures in northern Germany is the Weitsche elk, which was designed around 14,000 years ago. In the Bronze Age, the amber trade experienced a new dimension. Baltic amber was negotiated over many stations to distant Egypt. Raw amber is however rather unimpressive. Only by grinding and polishing does it get its magical appearance. In this program, an individual piece of jewelry is made from raw amber with stone or bronze-age methods, which may be taken home.
