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 when the region was experiencing a semi-tropical climate. Sometimes as the resin seeped out of thepine trees insects, foliage and even water droplets were encapsulated inside the sticky substance. These pieces of Amber now give us a wonderful insight into life over 44 million years ago.

 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.

Amber was one of the commodities traded along the famous "Amber Road" which lead from the Baltic to the Mediterranean and then onto the " Silk Route"  to the East.
A birthstone for Aries and Leo, it is said to promote courage , vitality and personal growth
