Etymology: From Arabic (ARchar, Ù) ("anbar) "ambergris" (now "amber"). ambergris, Ambergris, of animal origin, somehow became confused with the fossil resin, of vegetable origin, so the French language differentiated them as ambre gris, grey amber, and ambre jaune, yellow amber. English adopted this differentiation in the respective forms ambergris and amber.
