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 Baltic region was experiencing a semi -tropical climate. Eventually as the trees died and fell to the ground , layers of sediments, sands , gravels covered the ancient forests and a process known as molecular polymerization occurred to evenually create Amber.
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.
