Lost Treasure of the Amber Room
Looted during the second World War, the Amber Room is a lost treasure that consisted of amber panels back with pure gold, including mirrors and leaf.
During World War II, it was raided and taken away from Russia by Nazis soldiers, but the treasure has been a complete mystery for 70 years and has not been seen since.
The treasure was taken to Königsberg for reconstruction and display, but its true fate remains unknown.
In 1979, the decision was made to recreate a new Amber Room at the Catherine Palace and after decades of hard work and donations from Germany, the Russians finally completed the project in 2003.
The original lost treasure was a breathtaking sight of epic proportion. An absolute masterpiece of craftsmanship and art.
Though the lost treasure has not been rediscovered, there were some theories that followed when it disappeared. Most believe that the lost treasure was destroyed by bombers or Soviet artillery.
Many claims have been made that is has been found over the years, but all are ultimately met with disappointment and to this day, the treasure of the Amber Room and its whereabouts are one of the greatest unsolved mysteries in treasure, history and archaeology.
The original value is unknown, but it would be worth a small fortune if ever discovered, Unfortunately it falls into the realm of treasure that may never be found, though that doesn’t stop archaeologists and researchers from trying.
