Amber festival in Palo Alto, Cal

     (to make up for the joke earlier)
     "History enthusiasts and fossil collectors won't want to miss the 
     Amber Festival, 10 am-6 pm Friday and Saturday and 11 am-3 pm Sunday 
     at the Nature Gallery, 87 Town and Country Village, Palo Alto 
     (California, USA).  The gallery's exquisite collection of hand-crafted 
     jewelry, museum-quality carvings, and specimens of Baltic amber is 
     expanded for this event.  Several scientific experts and collectors of 
     amber will be on hand to discuss the mystique and practical potential 
     of this fossilized tree sap.   Call (415)327-8700"
     From today's San Jose Mercury News' Penninsula section
     the shop is small, but has very nice fish fossils, and the occasional 
     nice trilobite (the fancy Moroccan ones).  Their amber is mostly 
     jewelry or carved, but they do have some nice inclusions as specimen 
     pieces.  They should bring out more than I've seen for the festival.
