Properties of amber
Amber is made of fossil resin and can be up to 260 million years old. Over many years this hard substance, which is actually not a mineral or rock, has evolved from the viscous resin of former trees, but is still regarded as a precious stone.
This can be completely clear to opaque and is usually yellowish in color. This includes in particular the color honey yellow or yellow and white, where there is also amber in orange, red, green and even in brown or black. Likewise, a gemstone is usually determined by several colors that run into one another and are usually irregularly modeled in relation to its external shape.
Amber jewelry has always been popular, especially among women, and is often incorporated into necklaces or bracelets in the form of one or more gemstones.
Often, amber stones of various sizes are used to make necklaces or bracelets, the links of which are made from these precious stones. In addition, they are also available as a single pendant for necklaces, which is usually held in one version.
