More details

Amber is fossilized tree resin that has been used since antiquity in the manufacture of jewelry and ornaments and also in folk medicine.  Amber also forms the flavoring for akvavit liquor and has been used as an ingredient in perfumes.  According to Greek myth, when Helios' son, Phaeton was killed, his mourning sisters became poplar trees and their tears became the origin of amber.
