Strange Unknown Item Burmite Myanmar Burmese Amber Insect Fossil Dinosaur Age:
I really don't know the price in your country,so I send them insale,you decide the price of them,allsale‘s end price are lower than the wholesale price now,save my shop please,I will send the more rare items insale in the future,come I just want to sell them as soon as possible,for food anddiesel oil and dig moreburmite foreverybody.(Thanks thetext below for me.Best wishes to you.Thanks♪(･ω･)ﾉ)
Q:Why your item so cheap，if it isartificial？A:As a miner makingartificial amber is more difficult than selling untreated ones.
Q:Why so cheap,pleae answer！A：Becausethe most profit of us is from thejewelryburmite amber，our buyers are mainly from China andThailand,not many people collect insect amber.We are also not too knowledgible about the inclusion of in amber, we use books for the names of the burmite amber inclusions (if somebody wants a specific item, send me a message I will buy it in China for you.). Except for some very rare inclusions,most will be sold for a very low price.Unlike jewellery burmite amber, which sell in an open market very quickly,inclusion burmite amber sells slowly.Most of them won’t have fixed prices and will be sold wholesale. If we sell them the total price is higher than the cost to mine them. All are ok, and of the highest quality.
Q: When I use a heat test, the smell isn’t pine resin?
A: This is because most insect amber on the market is Baltic which are pine resin. Burmite amber is the resin from Araucaria, the smell is more likekerosene. The amber is also older than the Baltic amber so it is harder, if it isn’t cracked don’t be afraid of it falling ot the ground. It isn’t easy to lit
PSSSSS.I f you have any questions, the best place to ask is the specialized accreditation bodies, I will pay the test fee.
Q: I am new to burmite amber, what tools should I use?
Ora macro lens for cell phone(almost all of my photo for the shop are taken by cell phone this way)
Or electron microscope
Or SLR camera
Q: How long will it take for you to send the order?
A: In 10 days usually, because we go to China to send items at the post office every 5 days usually.
Q. Why aren’t your ambers finely polished?
A. Because I sell the ambers as rough stone that are polished with many other pieces in a machine. Which I sell to traders and they polish them carefully and sell for a high price. If you want to the ambers be more beautiful,you can use chamois towel or toothpaste to polish them, the polishing powder for ambers are the best.
Q: Is the oil you send them with safe? You will send ambers with a plastic with oil,it is safe?
A: The oil is natural olive oil(sometimes, if the olive oil is use out, I will use the safe baby oil), it protect the amber from oxidation, It is very safe, I would be happy to handle them all day.
Q: Do you have any butterflies or bees? (2019.1.12)
A: You will not find butterflies and bees in burmite, the expert says they did not appear until after the Cretaceous,so the insect in burmite that looks like a butterfly is Neuroptera lacewings or plant hopper; the insect like a bee is a wasp.
Q:The return policy.
A: If you do not like the burmite, send it back and we will refund you. You will have to pay for the postage and shipping cost. So you had better look carefully when you buy.
Q: Which amber inclusion you have ？
A：I don't know, maybe tomorrow I will dig up a dinosaur again. If you want something leave me a message and if I find the item you want I will message you.
Q: Why are some of your photos good and others are poor?
A: The good photos are taken by my partner and a professional researcher who specialises in ancient extinct life and the others are taken by the miners. I use a second hand iPhone 6 SE to take them. (*/ω＼*)
Q: If I do not received the items, what should I do?
A: Rest assured that I will refund you if the items are missing or takes too long to ship.

A：Of course, we can provide:
① . More than 1000 pieces. All kinds of insect amber every week;
②. Reservation service, get all kinds of rare inclusion first-hand in low price;
③. Returns & refund are free.
Look forward long term cooperation with friends around the world.
Q: Why you work so hard? List so many items in ?
A: Because I am poor. - -!!!Food and survival give me the power.

The Chinese called it hu-pe and believed it to contain the soul of a tiger. It was considered a symbol of courage and valour. Over the centuries, the Chinese had a trade monopoly on Burmese amber, it was even referred to as “Chinese amber.” In 1613, the Portuguese Jesuit Alvarez Semedo was the first European to write about the Burmese amber mines but in the later years there were no further accounts about them. The situation changed significantly after the Anglo-Burmese Wars (1826-1885) and Burma’s incorporation into British India, which is how an interest in the new kind of fossil resin arose in Europe. In 1835, Britain’s Captain Hannay was the first to obtain a permit from the local authorities to visit amber mines in Burma and a year later he described his experiences. But the knowledge about Burmese amber began to flourish owing to the German researcher Fritz Noetling. It was he that described in 1892 how it was mined by means of wooden hoes and bamboo baskets and gave samples from the town of Maingkwan to the Gdańsk-based pharmacist Otto Helm. Based on his research, Helm found this amber to be different from others that he was familiar with and was the first to call it burmite (1894). Noetling also brought burmite products to Europe (for example earplugs, beads, religious figurines). A heated discussion about the age of burmite began in the early 20th century. Based on insect studies, in 1917 T.D.T. Cockerell (see Poinar at al. 2008) was the first to suggest that it was a Cretaceous resin although other researchers claimed the Tertiary age of the burmite-bearing rock. Due to the domestic unrest, burmite mines were closed down in 1936. This situation had continued for more than 60 years until 1999, when due to the gradual political change the amber mines were reopened. Initially, they were available only to US and Canadian companies but after the economic sanctions were lifted they also became accessible to international amber researchers and for commercial mining. As a result, the 21st century has brought flourishing research on burmite and a considerable increase in its production. The most interesting discoveries from this period include those made by Lambert and Wu (see Poinar et al. 2008), who designated burmite-’s parent tree as the araucaria in 2002, while Tappert at al. (2013) described Cupressaceae as its botanical source (see Vávra 2015) and Cruickshank and Ko’s research (2003) confirmed Crockerell’s thesis about its Cretaceous origin. Intensified research on Burmese amber is yielding surprising discoveries, for example the finding of the oldest grass fossil or multiple animal inclusions. IR absorption spectroscopy tests have demonstrated that burmite yields the spectrum of romanite. Outside of Romania and Burma, romanite can also be found for example in Turkey and Sakhalin (Kosmowska-Ceranowicz 2015). Mining Burmite mining is associated mainly with the Hukawang Valley, Kachin Province. The region’s best-known mines include: Maingkwan, the largest mine from the colonial times, as well as Tanai and Noije Bum. Another well-known mine is Inzutzut located 90 km east towards the border with China. Last year, however, a new mining location was reported: Hti Lin, Magway Province. An international team of scientists with Arunas Kleismantas (2015) from Vilnius University reports that about 100 miners (mainly farmers) produce amber from 20-30 shafts across an area of ca. 10 km². His studies of IR spectra show unequivocally that samples from the Magway Province mine correspond to the samples from the Kachin ProvinceMines ofburmiteknown to date. This gives us hope that present-day Myanmar (Burma) has more as-yet undiscovered burmite deposits. The beauty of burmite Burmite is a resin which, together with the sediments in which it ended up, had been altered in the mountain range uplift processes under the influence of increased pressure and temperature. That is why, despite being harder than succinite, in general it is highly cracked internally. This is where the reason for using pressed burmite in China may have come from (Kosmowska-Ceranowicz 2012). Natural burmite figurines, just as pressed burmite beads, have similar features to succinite: they are easily workable and durable. On polished surfaces of the yellow varieties, the weathering process first shows only through a change in colour which, affected by the air, light and changes in humidity, darkens to become red and shades of brown. Summary ofburmiteIf we compare the hardness of burmite (2,5-3) with the hardness of succinite (2-3), which noticeably influences the degree of its workability, a wide range of naturally occurring burmite colours (from yellow, almost transparent to deep red) and the relatively lower price, at least for the time being, competition with succinite seems to be a given. We also need to remember that burmite has strong cultural and historical roots in the Chinese market and even today indirectly meets the demands of the Eastern markets.
