amber

Amber is a fossil resin of very ancient origin and has been used since the Stone Age.
It may contain insects and plant material imprisoned at the moment of its formation.
In ancient Greece it was known as ‘elektron’ because it becomes charged with electricity when rubbed, and was traded along the ‘Amber Road’ connecting the Baltic with the Mediterranean.
The most highly prized amber comes from the Baltic countries, the Dominican Republic, Mexico and Sicily.
