A fossil resin, generally yellow and semi-transparent, derived, it is presumed, from certain extinct coniferous trees; becomes electric by friction, and gives name to electricity, the Greek word for it being electron ; has been fished up for centuries in the Baltic, and is now used in varnishes and for tobacco pipes.
