Amber is a unique luxury resource, appearing on both forested land (where it is improved with a Mine) and in the water (where it is improved with Fishing Boats). Either way, it provides Culture and the standard Amenities bonus of luxury resources, as well as the Mine's bonuses to Production or the Fishing Boats' bonuses to Food and Gold.
Notably, water-based sources of Amber may appear on any Coast tile on the map, whereas land-based sources will appear only on a single continent (as one of that continent's four unique luxury resources).
Amber has been prized for its decorative value since the Neolithic era, and also figured prominently in religious practices. Not just shiny stones, the scent of amber made it imminently tradable by European Catholics during the Reformation period, who considered it a blessing from God.
