Amber Ball (琥珀の玉 kohaku no tama?) is a key item in Resident Evil 3: Nemesis.


Along with the Crystal Ball and Obsidian Ball, it was used on the clock puzzle to obtain the Gold Gear.

When solving the clock puzzle, this ball has the following properties:

  • Minus three hours, using on the "Past Goddess"
  • Plus three hours, using in the "Present Goddess"
  • Plus six hours, using on the "Future Goddess"

This item can be picked from the tray under every picture if the puzzle has not been solved yet. After the access to the Gold Gear is achieved, this ball cannot be picked up again.


This item can be found in the Storeroom of Saint Michael Clock Tower, held in the tray of a statue of a yellow maiden.

The message "A maiden's statue holding a tray. An Amber Ball is on the tray." can be read, when one explores the left statue, that holds this item.
