Amber

AMBER

Amber is not actually a stone or crystal, but rather fossilized tree resin, usually from coniferous trees. Amber is so rare because the resin has to be resistant to decomposition. While many trees produce resin, very few produce resin resistant enough to withstand sun exposure, rain, temperature extremes, and bacterial decay. Many specimens include organic plant or insect materials fossilized inside.
