Amber: the Jurassic gem

Dinosaurs have been more popular than ever since their starring role in the film Jurassic Park. A more surprising result of the film’s popularity has been a worldwide surge in demand for amber jewellery. Although amber’s use in adornment is probably as old as mankind itself, in recent times it has had a limited market. Of course, that was before millions of people saw dinosaur DNA extracted from a mosquito trapped in amber in the film.

Millions of people learned from the film that amber, which is fossilised pine tree resin, is ancient and valuable, like an antique from history.

Swiss Military Tank
