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 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 will form .
A birthstone for Aries and Leo, it is said to promote courage , vitality and personal growth.
