This is a high quality piece of 100% world class Dominican amber with a truly amazing show of blue fluorescence. This exquisite specimen can be made into beautiful, one of a kind jewelry or is the ideal addition to any collection.
Dominican amber is very special. It is the hardened resin from an extinct species of a broad leaved tropical tree that is found only in the Dominican Republic and is considered to be around 40 million years old. While yellow and reddish amber is also found in the Baltic and parts of Mexico (as well as the blue green tones Mexican amber is known for) the unique tones of blue, green, and red found in the Dominican amber are to be found nowhere else on earth and are very rare even there.
