When looking to find out, what is the origin of Amber, the search goes back millions of years. 

One of the areas where there has been a lot of research into this stone, is the Baltic regions where it has been found in quite large amounts.

Around 45 million years ago, pine trees in the Baltic regions, the Scandinavian countries, discharged resins. The amber resin from these trees went solid and later became fossilized.

What Is Amber Made Of?

All this happened over many, many thousands of years. If you are wondering what is amber made of, it is made from this resin that gradually moved from the pine forests and ended up close to the coastal regions.

From the coastal regions the resin again moved and it ended up in the bottom of the sea where it fossilized. Much later it was brought to the surface by glaciers and deposited on the land, where it has been found since that time.

All of this process happened many thousands of years ago, evidenced by the fact that Baltic Amber jewelry dates back to well before Christ. Celtic Amber jewelry has been found, made from beautiful Amber stone.
