The Baltic region is home to the largest known deposit of amber. Know as Baltic amber and hailed for its exceptional quality. Amber which is actually tree sap that rolled down the trees trunks into the Baltic sea encircling and containing within itself en-route small insects air bubbles and tiny animals. In the depth of the Baltic sea during 44 million years the sap fossilized and became the beautiful multicolored translucent resin – Amber. It is estimated that the ancient tree sap of the coniferous forest on the Baltic shore has created more than 100,000 tons of amber. Amber has been known since ancient times, it is mentioned in the old testament, and was used in trade. There were various myths to explain where this wonderful resin came from. Ovid the Roman tells us that amber is the crystalized tears of the grieving Clymene and her daughters, following the tragic death of Phaethon. Other ancient legends claimed that amber was the solidified rays of the sun captured while descending to earth For a while its value was higher than gold. Amber originally was collected when it washed ashore. Now it is harvested from the depth of the sea.
