Amber is not only a stone fit to be set in jewelry, but it also gives a geological picture of the area is it found in. At the Amber World Museum, you can view pieces of amber which within them have a number of fossilized creatures and vegetation.


Each piece of amber at the museum has a data card within information about when it hardened and what fossilized inside it.
