At the museum[edit]

In Animal Crossing[edit]

When the player donates to Blathers in Anim. Crossing, he will provide the following information about the Amber:

"Hoo! Again, I say hoo! Just look at this. Amber. Stoutly preserving the pale reminders of our past. And this is quite a large, full-bodied specimen, eh wot? Smooth. Exquisite. I'm reeling in awe! Amber is a form of tree resin, which has hardened and been preserved in the earth's crust for millions of years. Resin is produced as a defense against insects and disease. It seals wounds, allowing trees time to heal. Sometimes, unlucky insects get caught in the resin, too. I wonder what's in your amber? A fly? Perhaps a mosquito? Amber, you see, is a preservative of miraculous proficiency. Bits of amber are like miniature time capsules. Hoo, mercy! What prattling! I must beg your pardon. I imagine you feel as though you've been captured in time!"

In Wild World[edit]

When donating to Blathers in Wild World, he will provide the following information about the Amber:

"Amber is created when the sap from ancient trees hardens, wot? It does bear mentioning... Amber in and of itself is glorious. But if there is a bug trapped inside, well, then it is even more beautiful! The bug even retains the exact shocked expression it had when it was trapped!"

In City Folk[edit]

Amber in the museum in City Folk.

When donating to Blathers in City Folk, he will provide the following information about the Amber:

"Amber comes from the sap of ancient trees that has hardened over time, wot? Sometimes there are even insects caught within! Serves them right. It's beautiful, of course, and scientists are also quite keen on it, so it's rather expensive! These marvelous little fellows provide us with clues to the period when dinosaurs ruled the earth!"

In New Leaf[edit]

When donating to Blathers in New Leaf, he will provide the following information about the Amber:

"Amber is simply fossilized tree sap, formed and hardened over many thousands of years. Prized for its beauty, amber is often used in accessories such as necklaces and earrings. Amber containing a trapped insect, such as a bee or ant, can fetch a particularly high price."

In New Horizons[edit]

When the player donates to Blathers or selects "Tell me about this!" in New Horizons, he will provide the following information about the fossil:

"Amber is formed from the sap of ancient trees that hardened over time. Because of its beauty, it has often been traded and used as jewelry throughout history. However, individual specimens may contain ancient plants or insects trapped inside them! These are valuable resources for learning about ancient eras, such as when the dinosaurs roamed... And this is why they are sometimes displayed in certain...ahem... exceptional museums! Like mine."

The Amber can be found in the first room of the fossil exhibit in the museum.
