Since the Stone Age amber has been prized and revered by many cultures—for its beauty and for its supposed curative and magical powers. Sometimes called "the golden gem of the ages," amber is an organic, fossilized-resin gem often found in coastal areas—especially from the Baltic Sea where it is sometimes discovered on the shore after a storm. Baltic amber jewelry—like this Amber Sunburst Pendant Necklace—is curated at our National Museum of Natural History.
