This piece has a beautiful and rarely seen green color (all natural and untreated) that some attribute to the presence of ancient chlorophyll in the amber.
The green color is only apparent when the piece is under natural sunlight in order to result in fluorescence. One can also see an orange color depending upon how sunlight is striking it.
Geological studies have dated Dominican amber to be between 17 and 20 million years old!

Dominican fossil amber is known for the clarity of its inclusions including such things as insects, arachnids,and botanicals.
All amber I offer is authentic, non-treated material. Many of these specimens have been hand-sanded and polished by me. They have not been reconstituted nor are they plastic.
This amber is much more rare than the ever prevalent Baltic amber which originates from several countries and across Europe.
Dominican amber comes from one island source: the Dominican Republic which shares the island with Haitiand the supply is much smaller than that of Baltic amber which has been mined for centuries and now is mass mined as opposed to Dominican material which has been mined for only decades with picks and hammers by candlelight.

Please note that the saltwater test to identify real from fake amber is not reliable. The saltwater test claims that real amber will float in saltwater while fake amber will sink.
However, many amber sources or even specimens will not float in saltwater as their botanical (plant) composition as well as fossil inclusions are such that they are more dense than saltwater and so sink. I do not sell fake amber. My response should help demonstrate this.
