    So, is the color of this piece slightly amber or clear?

    I always thought it was clear and just yellowed as it aged. I'd like to get the info from someone much more knowledgeable about it though.

    i always thought the same. I never really have seen anyone really look into it. But id guess it was a clear acrylic originally. Of course that is my speculation. If there is any info/knowledge out there to confirm that im sure someone on this board knows lol

    It was clear with slightly mat faces where the Perspex was cut. The discoloration is the result of aging and/or handling (as others mentioned). Here's the Perspex block (top of the small shelf on the table) in its raw form:
