It might be referred to as a ‘living’ stone, because it changes its face under the influence of oxidisation and polymerisation.
Amber has a large range of colours. The most popular ones have a colour of cognac and honey, the more original ones are green, grey or even blue. The variety and easy processing that this stone offers is the reason why it can be used both in classic and modern forms in various fields.
An interesting phenomenon is inclusion, that is the occurrence of small insects or plants inside of this precious stone. Such specimen is a great source of information for scientists analysing evolution. What makes us even prouder is the fact that the owners discovered a new breed of a ground bug that was called ‘Aphrophoridae’, a word deriving from Latin. This stone is now in the Muzeum Ziemi museum in Warsaw.
