Amber dates back tens of millions of years and unlike most mineral stones, is an organic gem, bringing with it a unique historical captivating quality. Known best as the fiery red-orange or golden brown gemstone seen on rings, earrings and necklaces, amber is an exquisite material for decorative jewellery.
Nature’s Bejewelled Time Capsule
These fascinating amber stones, like all organic gems, are formed over millions of years by once-living organisms that have become fossilised in hardened sap from ancient trees. The oldest amber dates back to 320 million years ago. It has been deeply valued by the ancient Greeks, Egyptians and today, by scientists and jewellery connoisseurs, giving us a glimpse into our past ecosystems.
Thus, amber stones are like nature’s own time capsules, precious to those who wear them today. Amber jewellery can be worn in many ways, each one as endearing as the next. Take a look at some of the heartwarming pieces from Adelaide Jewellery Repair Specialists.
