Amber is fossilized tree resin excreted from evergreen trees during the Cretaceous period. It has been valued as jewlery, incense and fuel since the Neolithic era. Ocean storms cause amber to be thrown up from the ocean floor onto shore, where it is then collected. It is also retrieved by diving and dredging. 90% of mined amber comes from the Baltic Sea region.

Amber is most commonly yellow, orange or brown, but can be found in red, lemon yellow, black and green. The most valuable and rare is blue amber. Opaque yellow amber containing bubbles in known as “bony amber.”
