SHORT HISTORY ABOUT AMBER

Amber is the real treasure of Earth! Yet since olden times, in the epoch of neolith, people opened on your own and highly estimated amber - natural petrified resin of ancient conifers.

Archaeologists often meet wares from amber among tailings of the material worlds of almost all epoches on the way of development of civilization. In antiquity yanatrya added different eldritch properties: he rescues from a fever, icterus, prevents a different disease, grants beauty and longevity the proprietor.

In 1050 of Ibn Sena (Avicena) marked amber as medications against many diseases are violation of cardiac rhythm, stomach-aches. Amber is stopped by bleeding, used as a protivovospalitel"noe mean.
