Baltic Amber Colors

Baltic amber comes from old Umbrella trees from millions of years ago.The shades of amber colours can be slightly different from each tree. Also the varied circumstances changed the chemical reactions from other minerals in the earth. This is what makes amber so unique as its difficult to exactly describe how the colour is formed.

Obviously the resin does effect the colour the most. Theories are that trees in swamps have different coloured resin to trees on higher ground.It does make sense if you fertilize a plant in your garden that it will grow stronger and bigger than one not fertilized. Perhaps in nature it would be the same. In nature the position of the tree could be the mystery answer to this question. If the tree was in a bog or swamp it would have more nutrients and be a darker colour. If it is on a hillside in sandy soil you would expect clearer resin.

The number of bubbles also effects the light transmission inside these gems. Bubbles can make the colours seem lighter or darker. The bubbles are natural gas bubble inclusions trapped while the resin is flowing.The more bubbles generally mean the amber colour is lighter yellow.

Green amber accounts for only around 1% of amber found. If this Amber is heated a brown amber can turn green colour. The blow table shows how the colors of Amber can be graded.
