A beautiful piece of half polished 100% Dominican amber. It’s organic shape and unpolished side highlight the unique intricacies of the ancient botanical matter captured within this incredibly lovely specimen; and it also shows the highly prized and sought after blue fluorescence of Dominican amber. This awesome chunk of amber could be made into a one of a kind piece of jewelry, a fantastic carving, or would be a welcomed 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.
