Etymology and history
The English word amber derives from the Arabic 'anbar.
Amber is discussed by Theophrastus, possibly the first historical
mention of the material, in the 4th century BC. The Greek name for amber
was ηλεκτρον (electron) and was connected to the Sun God, one of whose
titles was Elector or the Awakener. The modern terms "electricity" and
"electron" derive from the Greek word for amber and come from William
Gilbert's research showing that amber could attract other substances.
The word "electron" was coined in 1891 by the Irish physicist George
Stoney whilst analyzing elementary charges for the first time.
Amber ranges in color from dark brown, to green, honey, to a clear
lemon yellow, there is a variety of Amber colors depending on the location, age, texture and other factors. Amber is a unique preservation mode, preserving otherwise
unfossilizable parts of organisms; as such it is helpful in the
reconstruction of ecosystems and organisms The chemical composition of
the resin is, unfortunately, of limited utility in reconstructing the
phylogenetic affinity of the resin producer. Amber sometimes contains
animals or plant matter that became caught in the resin as it was
secreted. Insects, spiders and their webs, annelids, frogs, crustaceans,
bacteria and amoebae marine microfossils, wood, flowers and fruit,
hair, feathers and other small organisms have been recovered in ambers
dating to 130 million years ago. In most cases the original organic
material has decayed, leaving only a cavity, and sometimes remnants of
resistant materials such as chitin.
Amber in jewelry
Amber has been used since the Stone Age, from 13,000 years ago. Amber
ornaments have been found in Mycenaean tombs and elsewhere across
Europe. To this day it is used in the manufacture of smoking and
glassblowing mouthpieces. Amber's place in culture and tradition lends
it a tourism value; Palanga Amber Museum is dedicated to the mineral.
Amber is very soft stone and can be scratched easily. Bracelets and
rings with amber cabochons should be worn with care to prevent marring
the stone. Much of the amber used in commercial jewelry is actually
reconstituted which makes it harder and less prone to scratching.
Most amber that has been used in jewelry is from the region of the
Baltic Sea. Poland, Russia Lithuania and Latvia. Amber is also as a
stone from Dominican Republic.
