Poland has amazing amber.

Sadly, my photos of it are mostly not as amazing, in part because I hadn’t yet got the hang of all the tricks that help make museum shots come out better. We went through not one but two museums of the stuff, though, one in Gdansk, the other at Malbork Castle, and I did not get tired of it at all. This is a modern sculpture using just a piece of amber; in the background you can see display cases full of more objects, most of them made entirely of the stuff. Utterly stunning.
