AMBER

  • Regenerating Intensive Treatment
Amber Powder The name amber derives from ambergris, which is actually an oily, perfumed substance secreted by the sperm whale. This was often washed up on beaches on which amber was also found, causing some confusion. Amber is in fact fossil resin from prehistoric coniferous trees. In Germanic languages it is called 'burn-stone' (e.g. German Bernstein), because if heated it will soften and eventually burn. The Latin name for amber, succinum, means gum-stone and gives us the adjective succinic.
