AMBER - is one of the the organic gemstones, being the time-hardened fossilized resin of pine trees. As such it varies from about 20 to 60 million years old, it appears surprisingly light and warm to the touch and readily produces static electricity when rubbed. Amber is most usually similar colour to honey, varying from golden yellow, through rich orange and red to brown, but some can be white, dark brown almost black, blue or green. There  are two main varieties

1. Sea Amber which is washed up along certain shores, especially the Baltic Sea.
2. Pit Amber which has been mined in various places e.g. Burma and Mexico.
