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. 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. This is why originally much Amber was found washed up on the beaches.
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 occured .
The Ancient Romans believed that small Amber pieces were the tears of the Gods. It was also thought that the suns ray`s 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.
