    Amber (fossilised tree resin), is valued as a gemstone and can be made into a variety of decorative objects. Amber is also used as an ingredient in perfumes and a healing agent in folk medicine
     
    Pressed amber is often autoclaved (treated with high pressure saturated steam at about 170°C to 190°C). These modern techniques have allowed for the enhancement of the amber so to include ‘sun-spangles’ (or fish scales), which are enclosed air bubbles that have been forced by the heat and pressure to form iridescent disc. Pressed amber is stronger than natural amber because any fractures or flaws have been eliminated.
     
    Most amber beads and jewellery are made from pressed amber as the pressing gives manufacturers uniform pieces that can be used in production
