What is Baltic Amber?

Amber is an organic stone from coagulated resin of conifers covering the area of Northern and Central Europe of today. In spite of numerous processes that resin underwent while turning into amber, it still remains in the stadium of oxidization and polymerization. Since this process still goes on, amber is constantly changing and one can assume that it is a “living” stone.

History of Baltic Amber

The history of amber is shrouded in mystery. Until today some facts connected with its creation have not been explained. Baltic amber, called succinite, is fossil resin created about 40–60 million years ago. Since that time it has undergone processes of hardening and weathering, which contributed to its exceptional charm.

Amber Inclusions

Inclusions in Polish amber are, in short, a trace of life from the period of time when the liquid resin was coagulating, over 40–60 million years ago. Inclusion can be called everything that is inside an amber and was not resin. Thus, it will include bubbles of air, water, pyrite shells, earth and also plants (twigs, sticks, tree bark) and animals. The latter are called organic inclusions.
