The amber as a symbol within a scientific context is the material that crystallizes, preserves, and retains the specimens, material that resists the passage of time and allows a knowledge of the past that is kept live like in appearance but dead in essence, different from the fossils or carcases. Amber has a transparency, is a
symbol of containment, detention of time and archaeological study.
