Product Description

A fully polished Amber specimen from the Dominican Republic included with a wealth of organic and mineral debris.

The transparent Amber is strewn with dark fecal pellets, most likely deposited by insect larvae (magnified image 5).
Along with these is a small planthopper insect (image 6), flow lines (image 7) and a rare inclusion, metallic Pyrite particles (image 8).

When exposed to standard longwave illumination, the Amber exhibits an attractive chalky greenish-blue flourescence (image 9).
The effect is best viewed with a UV torch or penlight, but can also be seen in direct daylight, giving the stone a greenish-hue.

weight:  9.03 carats / 1.80 grams
shape:   Polished specimen
dimensions:   18.47 x 16.26 x 11.74 mm
