Description

Our tradition began in the 70’s with my mother’s passion (Mrs. Lilia Mijangos 1935-1995) for amber from Chiapas, which was not that well known back in those days. She started buying pieces of this vegetable resin brought to her by farmers from Simojovel, Chiapas. This is how she started a personal collection of pieces with different insects inside, interesting colors and special shapes. She became the forerunner of the collection and the trade of this ancient resin. People from around the world used to come see her to obtain raw pieces and captive minerals. As time went by, she started cutting and designing jewelry in gold and silver. Following her example, we continued working with this mysterious mineral. In 2000, we opened our first jewelry store in San Cristóbal de las Casas, where we started selling pieces made in our own lapidary machinery studio. We transform this Mexican gem and design cuts in several innovative and unique shapes and designs. In 2013, we founded the Amber Museum “Lilia Mijangos”, where more than 450 pieces are exhibited and the interesting process of the formation of this resin is explained, as well as its extraction and history. The museum is associated to our Amber Gallery, which is the base to the respect we have when working with a non-renewable material formed more than twenty-five million years ago. We have been committed to make Mexican amber known worldwide by taking care of the selection and quality of these amber pieces we work with and achieving then a high level and 100% Mexican product. Amber from Chiapas is one of Mexico's designations of origin. Medium amber beads elastic bracelet.

The tradition of the Museum of amber begins on the 70’s with Mrs. Lilia Mijangos’ passion for amber from Chiapas, which was not well known back in those days. She started purchasing pieces of this resin from farmers of Simojovel, Chiapas. This is how she began a personal collection of many pieces of amber with insects and flora inside, and interest colors and shapes. Soon she became the precursor of the collection and trade of such resin. People from different parts of the world visited her to purchase raw pieces with fossils within. In time, she started cutting and designing jewelry in gold and silver.

Following her example, artisans keep working with this mysterious material. In 2000, the first jewelry store opens in San Cristóbal de las Casas, where pieces made in a private lapidary workshop were sold and where they transformed this Mexican gem into edgy and unique designs with different cuts and styles. In 2013 the Museo del Ámbar Lilia Mijangos is opened, where more than 450 pieces are exhibited and the interesting process of formation of this resin is explained, as well as its extraction and history. The museum is affiliated to Galería Ambaria, where they show respect for working with a non-renewable material that formed more than twenty-five million years ago. They have been for many years committed to introduce to the world Mexican amber carefully selecting pieces to obtain a first level high quality product made in Mexico.
