Amber is a fossilized tree resin. It was formed over millions of years. The amber originated from trees in an ancient rain forest. The tree sap (or resin) became buried and preserved. This resin was soft and tacky. Over time the resin went through a process called partial polymerization and it began to harden. After several thousand years, the tree sap turned into copal. It still wasn’t amber at this time, although some of the qualities were the same as real amber. Then, over millions of years, the volatile oils (called turpenes) that were trapped inside began to evaporate to produce amber.
Fossil ambers are usually found with trapped inclusions. Such inclusions are extremely important to scientists because they preserve even the finest things such as the DNA and internal tissues.
