Lumps of amber and amber clods, especially those with beautiful weathering rind or -bark are extremely rare and very valuable. Very rare are ambers with a natural hole. These were often worn in earlier centuries as "amulets". This kind is also very rare. Thus, there are also special forms of amber, which arose under the bark. They are on both sides provided with "stamps" of the bark, sometimes with convex and / or concave surface. Even so-called resin bags that have arisen between the annual rings of a tree, are popular collectibles.
