Amber is a fossil tree resin from the Tertiary and Cretaceous period, the resin of trees growing 320 million years ago. After heating, the Baltic amber gives off a nice resinous odour, reacts to solvents weakly and is placed between calcite (3.0) and gypsum (2.0) on a 10-point hardness scale. After scratching on the surface of amber, white scratches and small crumbs are formed. Rubbing amber for a long time with the material will attract paper through it. Knowledge about the properties of amber can help distinguish it from imitations. As a result, the chance of buying an amber necklace, which is not a fake one, increases. Interestingly, in Polish traditional medicine, amber was used not only to create jewellery but also for treatment purposes. The children were given amber during teething to eliminate the pain. It was also administered to people suffering from eye diseases, rheumatism, throat disorders, and cardiovascular diseases.
