Amber is a beautiful relic of the past, formed from fossilized tree resin. This unique necklace connect you to a time long ago with amber geometric shapes. AMBER IS A GEMBUT NOT A GEMSTONE. Amber is not a mineral, but the hardened resin of certain trees fossilized over long periods of time. Because it forms a translucent orange-yellow substance that glows when polished and held up to light, it has long been used in jewelry and other decorations.
The proper classification for organic gems like coral, pearl, and amber is gem material, not gemstone. AMBER WAS ONCE PART OF A TREE'S IMMUNE SYSTEM.
When a tree is punctured or scratched, the tree releases a sticky substance called resin to seal the wounded area. Over time, chemically stable kinds of resin will harden and form the pretty, translucent version of amber that you are familiar with. Thus amber is the hardened, stable resin of ancient trees. IT REQUIRES MILLIONS OF YEARS AND PROPER BURIAL CONDITIONS TO FORM.
