Several million years ago, a tree was injured, a branch cracked causing the tree to produce a beautiful deep, honey-colored resin. The resin flowed down slowly, trapping a bug and a few sediments from the tree itself. Over the course of a thousand years, the tree and it's sap fell over, and were covered with dirt and stones.
Fast forward about a million years. The tree has been stuck underground for so long that it has completely decayed. This particular tree, however, had a special type of resin that was resistant to decay and the resin remained. Trapped in sediment under heat and pressure for another million or two million years, the resin hardened into what we now call Amber.
At The Natural Jewel, there are few treasures that are quite so historical and natural as Amber. We love this fossil, and we're proud to sell it.
We source our Amber from the Baltic region and we even have some Amber from the Caribbean.
