Amber is a gemstone-like material that can only be acquired by putting Silt, Slush or Desert Fossils into an Extractinator. It can be used for construction purposes (Orange Torch and Amber Gemspark Block) or as a material in the early-game Amber Staff.
The best use is in crafting the Crate Potion, due to the increased potential of great rewards from Fishing. Crates are incredibly useful, even in Hard Mode. If opened in Hard mode, they may reward Hardmode ores or bars, as well as hardmode items or large amounts of money.
