Amber Altar

Lithuania, August 2011. I never before have seen jewelry decorating an altar.

Thanks to my Toronto Cousin for making this photo available to us.

Some look like they might be Miraculous Medals.

And a few could be worry beads or rosaries.

Or am I going blind?

Worry beads are uncommon in our culture, and I am not sure about whether those might be amber rosaries. They look like necklaces to me. I have another photo of amber at a religious site, and I think those are necklaces. I will check.
