How did amber evolve?
If you mean amber the gemstone then this answer holds good.
Amber is not a mineral but time-hardened fossilized resin of the
species of pine called Pinus Succinisera which grew in forests
around 45 million years ago, in the European main land known to us
as the Baltic region today. Amber gem was used by Palaeoliyhic man
in Austria from 45000 -12000 B.C. The nomadic hunters of the
Nesolithic age (12000-4000 B.C.) used amber to hunt animals. They
carved phases of the moon, hunting seasons and the animals that
they hunted on amber.
The Neolithic man (4000-1900 B.C.) started using amber as
decorative articles and jewels. The rich people of these societies
usually owned amber jewelry and used to gift it to their friends
Later, towards the end of the eighth century B.C. the Greeks
started using amber for inlay work in gold and ivory. Romans found
use for amber only in the first century B.C to first century A.D,
where they made rings and vessels out of amber.
