Great new addition to Front Street -
"Ambergris Jade" - a museum / jade store.
Very educational and classy.
Located across from Spindrift Hotel (old Belize Bank Building).
Very helpful and informative staff - they love to tell the "story" of jade -------- there are educational videos,and even a faux Mayan tomb in the old bank safe.

do take the time to stop. i pushed :rolleyes: our 3 kids in the door (what is worse than being educated on your vacation GAK) and they all found it very interesting. the curator seems to be very knowledgable. one of the things that he told us was that diamond was the hardest stone, garnet was second hardest, and jade was third. THEY ACTUALLY RETAINED THAT FACT. someone was talking about garnet being the january birthstone and they related their new found info. i was impressed.

I bought a beautiful jade ring when traveling in northern Thailand and watched a great film about how the jade gets from Myanmar (used to be Burma) to Thailand. Seems they smuggle it through the jungle on elephants - and seem very proud of that fact. Verrrrry interesting! I will definitely go to this place when we come in March. Thanks for the tip.
