Amber, the fossilized, hardened resin of a particular variety of pine tree, is one of the few gemstones of organic origin. Most amber is found in the Baltic, where it formed approximately 50 million years ago. Typically brown, yellow or orange in color, amber is amorphous rather than crystalline. Occasionally amber is found with interesting inclusions of insects or parts of plants.

Finding the right gemstones was easy on the web page. Payment was quite simple as well. Design of the site was nice and simple; however, the "Create Your Gemstone Lots" image appears fuzzy and lowers aesthetics in my opinion.
