Amber was known as "elecktron" to the ancient Greeks because rubbing a piece of amber with a soft cloth gives it an electric charge, a rare property among precious stones. The ancient Germans knew amber as "bernstein" (literally, "burn stone") because they valued it for its use as incense rather than as a precious stone.
Amber is often classified as a precious stone, but it isn't actually a mineral or stone at all; amber is the fossilized sap, or resin, of a pine tree. "Sea amber," found washed up on the shore among seaweed, is more valuable than mined amber because its surface is smooth and polished by the waves, rather than covered with a crust like amber from the earth. Amber washes up on beaches because it is light enough to float in seawater.
History of Amber
As valuable as it is today, amber once commanded an even higher price. Pliny wrote that the Roman Emperor Nero considered even a small amber figurine to be worth more than a healthy slave. Even farther back, amber was an important part of Stone Age man's daily rituals and supernatural beliefs. Amber, in its fossil form , can be up to 135 million years old, but most specimens are closer to 25 to 50 million years old.
