Amberif part 2, Amber, ‘the gold of the north’

Categories: News & StuffAuthor:

Amber, ‘the gold of the north’ is a fossil resin of coniferous trees from about 40 million years ago. Baltic amber is one of many types of fossil resins found in the world. Amber is linked to the oldest period of human history – the stone age. The oldest findings of amber products originate from the middle Palaeolithic era (about 300-40 thousand years B.C.). It was used as jewellery and amulets. Gdansk is located at the crossroads of historical and present amber trading routes. Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes contains animal and plant material as inclusions. These inclusions can have scientific importance as untouched remnants from millions of years ago. One whole day on AMBERIF was reserved for the International Amber Research Symposium, where a host of internationally renowned scientist presented their latest discoveries concerning amber, deposits and inclusions.
