The Standard Electrical Dictionary

  1. Amber

    Amber is a fossil resin, supposed to be a product of the extinct Pinites Succinifer and other coniferous trees. Most of it is gathered on the shores of the Baltic between Koenigsberg and Memel. It is also found in small pieces at Gay Head, Mass., and in New Jersey green sand. It is found among the prehistoric remains of the Swiss Lake dwellers. When rubbed with a cloth it becomes excited with negative electricity. The Greek word for it is electron, which gave the name electricity to the modern science. Thales of Miletus, 600 B. C., and Theophrastus, about 300 B. C., both mention its electric properties or power of attracting small objects when rubbed.
