Dominican Amber with a Fossil Beetle:Amber is fossilized tree resin, not sap. The resin is exuded as blobs which drip and flow down the trunk of a tree. Insects fly, walk or stumble into the resin and become trapped. The insect is the covered over by more resin.
The resin blobs fall off the trunk and are covered over by soil. Millions of years later the resin fossilizes into amber preserving the insect. The trees that produce the resin are ancient conifers many of which are extinct.The most popular ambers are Baltic, mined in Eastern Europe. Burmese mined in Myanmar and China and Dominican, mined in The Dominican Republic. These three types of amber differ in clarity and insect type.Burmese amber is the oldest 100 million years, Baltic 28 to 38 million years, and Dominican 15 to 20 millionyears. There is no way to test amber, itself, for age. Amber age is estimated based on the age of the rocksaround the amber deposit.
Insect can be seen with the unaided eye, magnification of 2x to 4x is better. Insect can sometimes be seen from both sides of the piece, providing 2 views.Amber insects make great subjects for macro and micro photography. Also great for classroom teaching aids.
I buy all my amber from established dealers in Europe, Far East and the Dominican Republic. It is not fake.Amber is shipped next day from Illinois.I do combined shipping.I can email a photo of your purchase if you so request.Ship to USA ONLY.
