Amber is the hardened resin of ancient pine trees. This organic substance is most well-known for the incredible inclusions of insects that can be found within it. People have been making amber jewelry for over 10,000 years, which could make it the first gem material ever used.
Amber is a fairly common, easy-to-work gem material. A constant wonder to the eyes, it typically occurs in various shades of yellow, orange, and brown colors. On the other hand, pieces with green, blue, or violet tints due to extreme fluorescence are rare.
Amber also has a wide range of transparency. The transparent material is used almost exclusively for jewelry. Amber is often tumble polished and used for beads, pendants, earrings, and rings. Faceted pieces are rare.
The opaque material is frequently carved into artistic ornaments and inlays, as well as practical objects such as pipe stems and umbrella handles.
