There is a Greek myth on how the crystal Amber was created ... Phaeton, the son of Helios who was the sun god, was tragically killed when he was struck by lightning. Phaeton's sisters were so overcome with grief that they turned into poplar trees and the tears that they shed turned into drops of Amber!
