Himalayan Amber - Greco Preziosi

From the far subtropical forests which lap the eastern buttresses of Hymalaya, some tenacious sherpa brought us a very ancient Amber, which date back to the Inferior Cretaceous, like the Lebanese one but much older; in fact, its age is around 135/140 million of years. In this remote place is possible to arrive over an elephant back, after an exhausting march of days and days in the jungle; this is one of the reasons why it’s so difficult find it in the international markets! Fortunately, however, it’s enough to deliver moving testimonies of that ancient life to the man; like a feather, for example, left by a bird that landed on a trunk, drenched with resin...SOME TIME AGO!
