A comprehensive introduction to amber and all its uses.
From the Publisher:

A comprehensive introduction to amber and all its uses.

Amber is an engaging overview of this natural substance. It also explores how the fossilized inclusions trapped in the golden resin of spruce trees provide a superb record of prehistoric species and habitats. Lavishly illustrated throughout, this book includes all the current knowledge and ongoing research, such as:

  • How amber is formed from the resin of ancient trees
  • The fascinating process by which amber preserves natural specimens
  • The secrets amber can reveal
  • Types of amber
  • Where amber can be found
  • The role of amber in science and art
  • Practical advice on how to distinguish genuine amber from fakes
  • Recent discoveries and developments

    Exclusive and particularly valuable features of the book include:

  • Stunning and previously unpublished photographs of specimens from the collection of the Natural History Museum in London
  • Detailed illustrated identification keys to the most common insect inclusions
  • The storied search for DNA in insect inclusions in amber

    Amber brings the study of this fascinating substance and its secrets within reach of any reader, and it will particularly fascinate rock hounds, fossil and gem enthusiasts, hobbyists and jewelry designers.
