Amber began as tree resin (not to be confused with tree sap).

It then became buried in the earth, whereby subjecting it to a lengthy and complex amberization

process and finally emerged as fossiliferous resin.

Baltic Amber from Poland was a cottage industry till 1989 when Poland gained its sovereignty and many old factories changed to making lathes for cutting and polishing amber.

Poland had an Amber industry starting from the 16th centenary and is popular now as amber is available at still economical prices for  natural gemstones.

In the early days amber was collected off the beaches of the Baltic a sit floated

But now days small dredging teams  dredge from deposits in the forests bordering the Baltic sea.

Amber is 35 -40  millions of years old and each piece is unique and distinct.
