Amber is the fossilized resin of ancient trees which forms through a natural polymerization of the original organic compounds. Most of the world's amber is in the range of 30-90 million years old. Amber is not produced from tree sap, but rather from plant resin. This aromatic resin can drip from and ooze down trees, as well as fill internal fissures, trapping debris such as seeds, leaves, feathers and insects. The resin becomes buried and fossilized through a natural polymerization of the original organic compounds. Baltic amber comes in a wealth of varieties produced by the great differences in the degree of its translucency and colour from pale yellow through numerous shades of yellow to white, bluish, greenish, beige and brown. These are among the factors which make amber such a highly desirable and valued raw material in the folk art and jewelry trades. Baltic amber varieties can be divided into primary and secondary. The fundamental criterion in distinguishing the primary varieties is the internal structure of the amber, which constitutes the key to establishing its color and translucency, as well as the degree to which it is contaminated by organic inclusions. The translucency and colour of amber depend on the amount of air bubbles contained within a given piece of amber and their distribution. People consider, that amber is the keeper of love and fidelity, it brings happiness, possesses healing qualities. Legends are arguable. One is indoubtedly true: Amber makes women perfect.
