  • Amber is strangely absent from the Sandgun's crafting recipe, instead using Topaz. This is likely because the Sandgun was introduced before Amber was.
  • In real life, amber is fossilized tree resin, making it different from other gems' real-life counterparts in the fact that it is much younger and made of organic material. Such resin is called copal.
