Product Description

A staggeringly beautiful and very rare cabochon of orange-yellow Amber from the La Toca mine, Dominican Republic.

The transparent gem contains a blooming flower of the Acacia tree from which the Amber was formed.

Visible to the naked eye and nicely centred under the peaked dome of the cabochon, the flowers' sepals are partially opened as shown in magnified images 5 and 6.
Along with this, the Amber also holds some tiny insects which are best viewed under magnification.
These include a good-sized ant (image 7) and a number of long-legged flies (images 8 and 9).

As can be seen in some of the images, the stone displays a green tone when viewed in daylight and flouresceses when exposed to UV light.

A rare and beautiful specimen for collectors, jewel designers and Amber enthusiasts.
