This is a comprehensive study of the various roles and uses of amber, in nature as well as art. The fossilized tree resin has not only inspired elaborate workmanship and long been used in jewelry and other decorative objects, but is also highly valued by natural scientists because it frequently encapsulates flora and fauna from other periods of evolution.
