Baltic amber from the sea
Amber washed up on the coast from the Baltic Sea is called Baltic Amber, and is produced in large quantities in the three Baltic countries along the Baltic Sea, Denmark, and Poland. Among them, Lithuania, Poland, and Kaliningrad (Russian enclave) are said to account for 80% of the world's amber production.
Tens of millions of years ago, the sap generated from trees on the ground changed the terrain, sinking into the Baltic Sea, turning into amber over many years, and being washed up on the shore by waves. It is said that a lot of natural amber is washed up on the coast on the morning after rough weather due to storms.
Many types of amber
Natural amber naturally comes in a variety of colors and appearances.
The orange color commonly associated with amber is called "cognac amber" after the name of brandy. Those that are not transparent are called "cherry amber" and those that are cream-colored and not transparent are called "royal amber". There are other types of amber such as green and blue.
Lithuania is said to be the last European country to accept Christianity. Until then, pagans called pagans worshiped nature and creatures, and worshiped forests, trees, snakes and bees.
Even now, if you go to the countryside of Lithuania, you can see that there are Pagan festivals and traditions are being preserved. And Baltic Amber is also useful as an "amulet" and "amulet" item.
