Amber gem was used by Palaeoliyhic man in Austria from 45000 -12000 B.C. The nomadic hunters of the Nesolithic age (12000-4000 B.C.) used amber to hunt animals. They carved phases of the moon, hunting seasons and the animals that they hunted on amber.

The Neolithic man (4000-1900 B.C.) started using amber as decorative articles and jewels. The rich people of these societies usually owned amber jewelry and used to gift it to their friends and relatives.

Later, towards the end of the eighth century B.C.

the Greeks started using amber for inlay work in gold and ivory. Romans found use for amber only in the first century B.C to first century A.D, where they made rings and vessels out of amber.
