Amber is a fossilised tree resin dating back around 40-60 million years ago, from the Eocene era. The origin trees that oozed amber resin are long extinct, leaving behind a history of natural beauty.
Found along the shores of the Baltic Coast (explore the beauty of the Baltic Sea), Amber in its complete natural form, is rock-like and usually opaque in colour. Most commonly amber is associated with its well know yellow-orange-brown cognac hues. However, there are numerous different shades, from a brittle white color through to citrus yellow, brown and even black. Other uncommon colors include cherry red amber and green amber.
