Baltic Amber The Artistic Context

Author : Anna Sobecka and Michał Kosior

The beginnings of Baltic amber (succinite), a fossil resin of organic origin, go back 40 to 50 million years to the Eocene Epoch, on the former continent of Fennoscandia (a continent which, at that time, constituted the northern part of the Baltic and Scandinavia). Land masses of the Eocene Epoch and contemporary times differ, as do their climates. In the hot, tropical and subtropical environment, the land was covered with a huge coniferous forest of resin-producing trees.
