Amber is much appreciated for its marvelous color and natural beauty. There even exists a whole museum—the Palanga Amber Museum, located near the Baltic Sea in Lithuania—dedicated to its rich history and luxurious beauty. They originate from the sticky resins of old pine trees, which have become fossilized over time from heat and pressure. Sometimes, amber may even contain within them preserved remnants of small insects—as depicted in the opening scene of the film “Jurassic Park”—spiders, or various plants.
Amber typically comes in golden, orange, or brown. Amber has a resinous luster and can range from transparent to translucent. It is extremely light and capable of floating in salty water with a specific gravity of only 1.1.
