Amber is considered a gem because it glows and glistens when polished, but Amber is not actually a gemstone. It is the hardened resin of certain types of ancient trees that have been fossilised over millennia.
Because of its unique properties, Amber has been adorned and studied relentlessly for centuries. It has been widely used for a variety of reasons including jewellery.
Every Amber gemstone is unique and most likely mined from the Baltic region where most Amber deposits are found. It is estimated that there have been over 105 tons of Baltic Amber produced by the Palaeogene forests in Northern Europe. It is the largest known deposit of fossilized plant resin on earth.
