Amber, originating from Scandinavia was known as 'the gold of the North’ and was traded with ancient civilisations far and beyond. As these glowing amber gems ended up in the hands of the Greeks, it was discovered that when rubbed against cloth, amber produced sparks. This force was given the name ‘electricity’ after the Greek word ‘electron’, which means amber, making it a source of electricity 2500 years before electricity was actually discovered.
