People know AMBER for thousands years It was well known in the Roman Empire, Ancient Greece and during the reign of the Egyptian pharaohs. When cracks appeared on the trees, resin was flowing out, and thanks to the warm climate, turpentine and water evaporated. The remaining resin solidified on the trunks and branches of trees and hardened over time. Years and even centuries passed. Due to various natural disasters - storms, hurricanes, floods and others - the trees broke, fell, covered with layers of the earth, or went to the bottom of the sea. The petrified resin gradually turned into AMBER, which we now find in the form of icicles, drops and other various, sometimes bizarre forms.
