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.
