Amber is a gemstone made from fossilized tree resin mainly from remains of conifers and some angiosperms. Etymologically, the name comes from Arabic, meaning that floats in the sea.

The trees produce resin as a protection against diseases and insect infestation when the bark of a tree is wounded because of breakage or an attack by wood beetles or other insects, bacteria or fungi. After oozing out, the resin is cured by polymerization inside clayey or sandy rocks, sometimes limestone that formed in river delta areas, usually associated with much organic matter, and have remained inside for millions years.

Is a fossil amber rest as it is an organic substance and its structure is not defined and in Europe, amber is formed from resin Pinus succinifera.
his springtail called silverfish (Lepisma saccharina), also known as the lepisma of flour, sugar lepisma, is a species of springtail bug Lepismatidae, agile family and a strong negative phototaxis (flees the light), making it rare to observe. The species name is derived from metallic gray glow of her body. Silverfish live from various plant materials, such as mold, paper and amilosos food (starch), like the tail of binding books or dressing for clothes.

It belongs to a very old, springtails, with fossils 400 million years old group. The springtails are considered true insects more primitive features, lacking primarily of wings (in other insects this lack is the secondary result of its evolutionary loss).
