Product Description

Review

The paperback is beautifully illustrated, text easy to follow, and short in its selection but broad in its scope, crossing traditional boundaries in natural and human history, so it's a good read whether you're an entomologist or an artist.' Antenna '... This is a major contribution to our understanding of the material. ... Overall a good read and well worth the modest cover price!' Down to Earth 'In this book, Ross and Sheridan have produced a brilliant addition to the amber literature, of interest to both layman and specialist.' Magazine of the Geologists' Association ' ... It forms a nice standalone book in its own right ... ' Palaeontological Association newsletter No 83 ' ... The "book of the show" is still available and is beautifully illustrated ... Apart from the geology of amber there is quite a lot about its archaeological appearances in Scotland, artistic uses, some advice on spotting fakes and much on the included insects - and, yes, Jurassic Park does get a mention!' The Edinburgh Geologist, Magazine of the Edinburgh Geological Society

I have learnt so much about Amber since reading this book, things I never realised before. It's too much for my old brain to absorb in one go, but it's an easy book to be able to go back into time and again for reference. I'm glad I bought it.

Quite a short book, but if you ever wondered what Amber is, it is a good starting point
