Amber was one of the first minerals to be prized by man and worn by humans for decorative purposes. Prehistoric people likely found pieces of amber washed up on the shores of the Baltic and the Mediterranean. There is evidence of trade of amber in Europe as far back as 28,000 B.C. Ten-thousand year-old amber jewelry have been found with human artifacts in England. Starting in the 16th century, workshops in Europe began fashioning amber into pieces of art.
