Dominican amber is very special. It is the hardened resin from an extinct species of a broad leaved tropical tree and is found only in the Dominican Republic. It is considered to be around 40 million years old. While yellow and reddish amber is also found in the Baltic and parts of Mexico, the unique tones of blue, green, and red found in the Dominican are to be found nowhere else on earth and are very rare even there.
