Amber is fossilized hardened resin of the pine tree that formed about 50 million years ago and was preserved in the Earth’s crust. It is mostly found in dense, wet sediments such as clay and sand at the bottom of a river delta. Amber has preserved ancient life and captured fragments of DNA of organisms entrapped in it. Amber originated from a species of now extinct plants.
