Amber is tree resin that has fossilized through many years. It is very important to Lithuania because of the fact that it was very common near the Baltic Sea.
First the tree resin is affected by high pressure and temperature to form copal. If the pressure and temperature conditions remain sustained for a long while, copal will eventually turn to amber.
Amber is extremely common near the Baltics. In fact, it accounts over 80 percent of the world’s supply of amber.
