Description

All of our Fossils are 100% Genuine Specimens & come with a Certificate of Authenticity

Specimen:
Dominican Amber with Inclusion
Age: Miocene Period – 23.03 to 5.333 million years ago
Location Found: Dominican Republic

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

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 fliesgnats, midges, beetleswaspsantsspidersseedsplants & more!
