Amber It took more than a thousand years for the resin to become a stone. If you’re wondering what the Amber looks like, it’s made of resins. The resin moved through the pine forests in time and approached the coastal areas. The resin from the coastal areas moved again and fossilized at the bottom of the sea. It was then brought to the surface by the glaciers and collected where it had been since. The whole process took place thousands of years ago, proving that the Baltic Amber jewelery was before Christ. #amber #jewelleryshop #praguejewellery #balticamber
