Baltic Amber is older but more common to find than Dominican Amber which is younger but more difficult to source.

Amber Inclusions are unfortunate animals, insects, plants etc. which became entombed in tree resin (not tree sap) millions of years ago. With the inclusion engulfed, the resin slowly hardened through a natural polymerization of the original organic compounds. This hardened material is known as Copal, which preserves the inclusion perfectly. Through time the Copal becomes buried and, over a several million year process, slowly turns into what we know as Amber. Incredibly this process has allowed us to marvel at ancient specimens frozen in time, as if captured only yesterday!

*We would always suggest using a magnifying aid to view your specimen to truly appreciate the inclusions stunning frozen detail. Inclusions can include such specimens as fliesgnatsmidgesbeetleswaspsantsspidersseedsplants & more!

Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device.
