Amber and natural beauty of this gemstone was and still is cherished by many people. It is a fossilized resin, which comes from old trees. There is no clear understanding as to why trees produce this resin, but it is thought that it might be part of plants protection mechanism. Due to processes of oxidation and polymerisation this resin turns into Amber over many years time. Consequently large rivers wash out this resin from forest ground into the sea where Amber is being collected by people.
