Amber is a gemstone, but it is actually not a rock or a mineral. "A mineral is a naturally occurring chemical compound, usually of crystalline form and abiogenic in origin (not produced by life processes)." Amber is produced biologically; it's an organic compound. "A rock is an aggregate of one or more minerals or mineraloids." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mineral
