The amber nuggets extracted in the mines of Sambia or found on the Baltic beaches are the fossilised resin of coniferous trees with its species yet to be determined conclusively. In the 19 th century, this species was denoted collectively as amber-bearing pine, Pinus succinifera , which was confirmed by Kurt Schubert in 1961. These pines grew over 45 million years ago (in the Eocene) in the mixed forests of the continent called Fennoscandia.
