Mr Amber King

Leino Renja

Mr Amber King, charming Kazimieras Mizgiris, tells humoristically about the wonders of the legendary Baltic Amber. He himself is a well known amber enthusiast, who loves to spread the legend of amber. He even shows some strange and unusual uses for this 50 million years old fossil amber. The industry around the material is huge, so it is interesting to learn how real amber can be easily told apart from plastic imitations.
