A variety of peaces and not only jewels.The whole spectra of colors. Everything beautifully presented in glass monters. Another proof of Chiapas' natural resources.

It only takes about an hour and a half to see this small, interesting place. They have two or three short videos about working with the amber and telling fake stones from real stones. The very old amber pieces of jewelry, rosary beads, etc are wonderful and the gift shop is great!

The jewelry was well made and fair prices, great people, we also had them make us some earrings which was done in 2 days and the quality was better than in many other stores, we bought several pieces from them.

If you are planning to buy amber, go here first, for sure. It is a lovely, peaceful small museum and you really learn a lot about amber and what to look for if you want to buy something. I also thought their designs and prices were the best we saw in SCC. The staff are very helpful.

Some very beautiful peices of amber work and a breif history on the ambar collection and the site on which it is housed.
