Amber is the fossilised resin of ancient pine trees  formed during the Eocene geological period about 44 million years ago when the region was experiencing a semi-tropical climate. As the resin seeped from the trees it began to solidify on the tree bark or fell to the forest floor often being carried to the sea by streams .As the trees fell to the ground layers of sediments covered the forest remains and a process known as molecular polymerization occured evenually creating Amber. Sometimes insects, foliage and even water droplets were encapsulated inside the sticky resin. Amber is nicknamed  Nature`s Time Capsule enclosing specimens of Life from millions of years ago as illustrated in the Jurassic Park films.

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 hue.
A birhstone for Aries and Leo it is said to promote courage and personal growth .
