The fossil resin, which is odorless, is found on the shores of the Baltic Sea, particularly in Poland, eastern Germany, and also along the North Sea coasts in Denmark, Holland, and England. A further quantity of Amber is obtained by mining.
Amber pieces which are unfit for jewelry as well as dust and residues from the gem industry are dry distilled in order to yield the Amber Oil.
