Amber is a petrified tree resin from a family of coniferous trees. Formation of amber is really fascinating: heat, pressure, oxygen and light exposure are the contributing factor in creation of amber and the main and the most important factor is time. Amber is like a time capsule that lets us take a glimpse into the prehistoric times-resin would trap everything it touched before it had a chance to harden. Amber is the only stone that is not cold to touch and is very light in weight and is considered a soft stone.
