For many centuries, people have been fascinated not only by the appearance of amber, its distinctive properties, but also by the history of its origin. The path of amber formation is long and complicated, reaching 1 million years. One of the oldest examples is dolomite amber – it is over 230 million years old – from the Italian Alps. Meanwhile, the age of Baltic amber found in Lithuania is 50-55 million.
The origin of amber is also evidenced by a Greek legend, which says that after the son’s death of the sun god Phaidon, his sisters turned into poplars and began to cry with the most impressive golden tears – amber. Greek legends only once again prove the timeless value of amber.
It is no surprise that this mineral called Baltic gold is highly valued. And not just because of its useful properties. Amber can be considered a chronicle of history and culture, which was formed year after year, layer by layer, saw and preserved the past, but now it is ready for the present.
