Old amber to reveal secrets

Amber found in the mountains of Lebanon has been confirmed as the oldest in the world, dating back 125 million years, and insects trapped in it could lead to scientific advances, a Lebanese scientist said. The amber also contains plants far older than those found in Baltic amber which dates back 35 million years, Professor Georges Tohme, head of Lebanon's National Council for Scientific Research said.
