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 covered the ancient forests and a process known as molecular polymerization occured forming what is known as `copal`. Further heat and pressure was applied  by the overlying sediments to evenually create Amber. Depending on the fossilisation conditions , different colours of Amber occur.

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
