Amber is not a mineral.
Amber is not a mineral. It may look like a mineral, and it is often used as a gemstone, like citrine or topaz, but it is actually the fossilised resin from prehistoric trees. It is organic, and the chemical composition can vary from one sample to another. Amber cannot be described a mineral.
