Some amber has insects or plants inside: when the resin flows out, the fragrance will attract insects. Because the resin is sticky, the insects are stuck and have difficulty escaping. Then the resin continues to flow out, wrapping the insects or leaves and seeds. Thousands of years later, these ambers containing unique insects or plants have become research objects for scientists, exhibits in museums, or treasures for amber collectors.
