Amber or fossilized resin is the subject of intense scientific research, due to this "time capsule" brings a wealth of valuable information about past life as fossils. This book begins with the story of the first ideas about amber and their uses, which continues to need to know to realize your origin and paleontological value and ends with some of the last frontiers of knowledge and modern techniques applied to their study. Like any other aspect of nature, the amber raises more questions than it answers, but their answers are often fascinating and surprisingly rich in detail.
