Prized since the Stone Age, treasured by ancient civilizations, as well as 18th and 19th century European monarchs, amber (particularly 40,000 to 50,000 year old Baltic amber) is still highly valued for its natural translucence. A glowing organic gemstone (naturally occurring in various shades of brown, yellow, or green), amber is actually the fossilized resin of prehistoric trees. Natural inclusions such as plant life or insects increase its worth.
