Description:

Ancient jewelry

Amber is a fossil resin of prehistoric pine, Pinus succinifera. This resin was formed millions of years ago when is dripped out of the trees and petrified.

From all periods of history, amber was used as healing jewelry.
The Greek mythological figure Elektra  is associated with amber. The Greek word for amber is "electron" where our word "electricity" comes from; a piece of amber can be electrically charged when rubbed with animal fur.
This is also the standard test to confirm that is real amber - plastic forgeries feel the same but can not be electrically charged.
