Amber Through the Eyes of a Geologist

Author : Barbara Kosmowska-Ceranowicz

The gemological notion of precious and decorative stones also includes amber, which is a mineral regardless of its organic origin. The digenetic processes, climate and environmental humidity changes, which the resin of both coniferous and broadleaf trees had undergone for millions of years, caused amber—in the broad sense of the term—to become an especially beautiful, warm and well-liked gemstone.
