Amber has a fascinating history, and was once more valuable than gold. Amber was traded like currency, and those caught taking amber from the Baltic coast were punished severely. Amber is the sap that ran down prehistoric trees, encapsulating life forms and matter to be preserved for us to enjoy today. The amber we see is usually about 30 million years old.
Amber is said to assist asthma suffers, and provides clarity of mind and alertness. For this reason many people carry a piece of amber in their car.
