Amber has a rich history of ancient uses and mythology, but it has become a popular fashion piece in more modern times.Though amber is a popular element in jewelry, it is not technically a stone. Gemstones are composed of minerals that are cut to shape, but amber are formed over the course of millions of years as tree resin hardens into the stone-like amber pieces.
Amber is valued for its color, opacity and potential in the field of fossil science. Historians believe that ancient cultures imbued amber with spiritual powers; primitive societies used amber stones in rituals and healing ceremonies.As early as 2500 B. Amber was a preferred stone for jewelry making because its malleability was well suited for primitive jewelry making tools. In Greek, amber was called "electrum", the derivative for the English "electricity"; historians theorize that the Greeks called amber electrum because amber stones produced an electric charge when rubbed with a cloth. The amber trade reached a peak in activity in the late nineteenth century when 2.2 million pounds (1 million kilograms) of amber stones were manufactured into jewelry over a five-year period.
