The Chamber of Amber It was the Russian Tsar's room dating from approximately 1707, a room built with panels and furniture made of amber chips.
Amber is a semiprecious stone that came to be valued 12 times more than gold
The Amber Chamber was considered a valuable masterpiece, pride of the Russian Empire that mysteriously disappeared during World War II, without leaving traces.
This work survived the 1917 Revolution and the Civil War, but at the beginning of the 1940 decade it began to be the victim of several attacks until it finally disappeared.
Like the artistic treasures of Leningrad, the Soviet Government tried to evacuate the Amber Chamber to Sverdlovsk in 1941 during the Second World War.
But this task could not be carried out because the amber was very weak and it was impossible to dismantle it without hurting it. It is said that it was tried to cover with common paper so that it was not perceived by the enemies.
However, this task was in vain because it was discovered by the Germans, dismantled and transferred to the Königsberg Castle where it was exhibited from 1941 to 1944.
With the July bombing of 1944, it is known that the camera was damaged when it was last seen.
Where can Russia's Tsar Amber camera be?
It is said that the Nazis evacuated the artistic treasures of the Königsberg Castle to the west and that the camera could have gone there
But another group of historians believes that this is impossible since the evacuation of East Prussia was all a chaos with no time for what it meant to dismantle and transport this valuable work.
Another hypothesis is that it was dismantled from the Königsberg Castle and that it was moved on a German ship that was wrecked.
However, there are those who think that this chamber could never be dismantled and was destroyed during the Battle of Königsberg that was given by the 1945 date.
The Chamber of Amber passed into oblivion for many years giving itself completely for lost.
However, a fact occurred in the 2005 reopened the story.
The discovery of underground tunnels in Lower Silesia (Poland) uncovered a Nazi Convoy, it was rumored that in one of its wagons was the Chamber of Amber along with other treasures of the time.
But to date nothing has been confirmed.
Today it is possible that the Chamber of Amber is fragmented and distributed among people who are unaware of their origin and their value.
