What is the significance of the Latvian word for amber dzintars? Our choral music is brought to audiences abroad by the Dzintars Choir, and dance is presented by the children's dance ensemble Dzintarins. The name of our main perfumery company is Dzintars; we love to put Dzintars cheese spread on our bread at breakfast. We all have somebody called Dzintars or Dzintra among our friends the name is so common among us who live at the shore of Dzintara jura, the Amber Sea, and who have so many fine songs about amber and the sea that nurtures it. What is this sun-stone caressed by the currents of the Baltic Sea?
Amber has a special place among all the precious and semi-precious stones. Unlike other decorative materials, amber absorbs body heat and is comparatively easy to work. This is because amber consists primarily of organic compounds, instead of being formed through the action of inorganic substances. Amber is fossil resin. The chemical formula for amber is taken to be C40H64O4, but in reality the chemical composition differs for each piece of amber.
