"Amber, the freezing gold, that is not hot and is not cold
Has caught within its dreaming arms, the insects and the flowers charms
Time has kept as still as death, holding instant, every breath
Now from out our fading past, a scene which can forever last"

Introduction & History of Amber

Amber is fossilized tree resin (not sap), which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Much valued from antiquity to the present as a gemstone, Amber is made into a variety of decorative objects.Amber is also used as an ingredient in perfumes, as a healing agent in folk medicine, and as jewellery.

Amber is one of the most beautiful natural forming compounds in the world. While many people categorize it as a precious stone, it is in fact fossilized resin. Amber is a by product of flora (trees, usually coniferous) that has hardened over the millennia. Most Amber today is said to be from 30 to 90 million years old. Amber’s scientific formula is written as C10H16O, incorporating carbon, hydrogen and oxygen.  Read More...

Some tribes, such as the ones in the northern-east part of the country, use Amber in their jewellery. Read More...
