Amber is the fossilised resin of ancient pine trees. Our Amber comes from the Baltic region and was formed during the Eocene geological period about 44 million years ago .As the trees fell to the ground layers of sediments covered the forest remains and a process known as molecular polymerization occured eventually forming Amber. Further heat and pressure wasapplied  by the overlying sediments to evenually create Amber. 

The Ancient Romans believed that small Amber pieces were the tears of the Gods.  It was also thought that the rays of the sun were captured in the Amber, what a lovely idea! Amber was also called The Gold of the North ,due to its enticing golden hues.
