COMMENTS: Just purchased from a local estate. This vintage amber sterling silver frog brooch. Perfect for a spring or summer outfit. Crafted in fine sterling silver. Amber is technically not a gemstone or mineral, but instead is fossilized tree sap from prehistoric trees that grew as far back as almost fifty million years ago. When a tree is injured or is subjected to a radical climate change, it will produce resin. The radical climate change took place millions of years ago. Sometime in periods between 10 and 100 million years ago, these resin-bearing trees fell and were carried by rivers to coastal regions. Trees and their resins became covered by sediment, and over millions of years the resin had gone through a number of changes over millions of years. The result of this metamorphosis is an exceptional gem with extraordinary properties. It is exploited and used by both craftsmen and scientist.
