Q:Why your item so cheap，if it is artificial？A:As a miner making artificial amber is more difficult than selling untreated ones.
Q:Why so cheap,pleae answer！A：Because the most profit of us is from the jewelry burmite amber，our buyers are mainly from China and Thailand,not many people collect insect amber.We are also not too knowledgible about the inclusion of in amber, we use books for the names of the burmite amber inclusions (if somebody wants a specific item, send me a message I will buy it in China for you.). Except for some very rare inclusions, most will be sold for a very low price. Unlike jewellery burmite amber, which sell in an open market very quickly, inclusion burmite amber sells slowly. Most of them won’t have fixed prices and will be sold wholesale. If we sell them the total price is higher than the cost to mine them. All are ok, and of the highest quality.
Q: When I use a heat test, the smell isn’t pine resin?
A: This is because most insect amber on the market is Baltic which are pine resin. Burmite amber is the resin from Araucaria, the smell is more like kerosene. The amber is also older than the Baltic amber so it is harder, if it isn’t cracked don’t be afraid of it falling to the ground. It isn’t easy to lit
PSSSSS.I f you have any questions, the best place to ask is the specialized accreditation bodies, I will pay the test fee.
Q: I am new to burmite amber, what tools should I use?
Or a macro lens for cell phone (almost all of my photo for the shop are taken by cell phone this way)
Or electron microscope
Or SLR camera
Q.Where the Burmite ambers you dig?A:2 places:Hkamti,Sagaing Division and Tanai,Kachin State,Burma.(2019.8.13)
Q:What the difference between the 2 places Burmite ambers?A:In total the ambers from Hkamti 's color are lighter and more easy to crack when cut and polishing，and have more young group,for example：the fly very like the fly in your home,and the raw stone alway with thick rock skin.And the insect in Hkamti amber are less than Tanai ambers;The Tanai amber are not easy to crack,if a ball made by Tanai ambers,if not have crack,can drop in the floor without any damage About the age of the 2 places ambers,I have asked many researcher，they told me that the age of them age the same,because the regional environment，so make they are a little different.(184.108.40.206)
Q: How long will it take for you to send the order? A: In 30 days usually, because we go to China to send items at the post office more than 15 days usually.(2019.8.23)
Q:Why the write"Plastic craft" instead of "amber" in the package?A:Because some shipping method have limitation of ambers,and many people think ambers are very expensive items,the items will have more risk of theft,so write“Plastic craft” in the package are more safer.(2020.5.10)
Q. Why aren’t your ambers finely polished?
A. Because I sell the ambers as rough stone that are polished with many other pieces in a machine. Which I sell to traders and they polish them carefully and sell for a high price. If you want to the ambers be more beautiful, you can use chamois towel or toothpaste to polish them, the polishing powder for ambers are the best.
Q: Is the oil you send them with safe? You will send ambers with a plastic with oil,it is safe?
A: The oil is natural olive oil(sometimes, if the olive oil is use out, I will use the safe baby oil), it protect the amber from oxidation, It is very safe, I would be happy to handle them all day.
Q: Do you have any butterflies or bees? (2019.1.12)
A: You will not find butterflies and bees in burmite, the expert says they did not appear until after the Cretaceous, so the insect in burmite that looks like a butterfly is Neuroptera lacewings or plant hopper; the insect like a bee is a wasp.
Q:The return policy.
A: If you do not like the burmite, send it back and we will refund you. You will have to pay for the postage and shipping cost. So you had better look carefully when you buy.

About burmite Myanmar(Burma) amberThe History of Burmese Amber
Burmite comes from northern Myanmar (formerly Burma) and neighbouring countries. It has been mined, as an artistic material, since the time of the Chinese Han dynasty (ca. 200 years BCE).
The Chinese called it hu-pe and believed it to contain the soul of a tiger. It was considered a symbol of courage and valour. Over the centuries, the Chinese had a trade monopoly on Burmese amber, it was even referred to as “Chinese amber.”
In 1613, the Portuguese Jesuit Alvarez Semedo was the first European to write about the Burmese amber mines but in the later years there were no further accounts about them. The situation changed significantly after the Anglo-Burmese Wars (1826-1885) and Burma’s incorporation into British India, which is how an interest in the new kind of fossil resin arose in Europe.
In 1835, Britain’s Captain Hannay was the first to obtain a permit from the local authorities to visit amber mines in Burma and a year later he described his experiences. But the knowledge about Burmese amber began to flourish owing to the German researcher Fritz Noetling. It was he that described in 1892 how it was mined by means of wooden hoes and bamboo baskets and gave samples from the town of Maingkwan to the Gdańsk-based pharmacist Otto Helm.
Based on his research, Helm found this amber to be different from others that he was familiar with and was the first to call it burmite (1894). Noetling also brought burmite products to Europe (for example earplugs, beads, religious figurines). A heated discussion about the age of burmite began in the early 20th century. Based on insect studies, in 1917 T.D.T. Cockerell (see Poinar at al. 2008) was the first to suggest that it was a Cretaceous resin although other researchers claimed the Tertiary age of the burmite-bearing rock.
Due to the domestic unrest, burmite mines were closed down in 1936. This situation had continued for more than 60 years until 1999, when due to the gradual political change the amber mines were reopened. Initially, they were available only to US and Canadian companies but after the economic sanctions were lifted they also became accessible to international amber researchers and for commercial mining. As a result, the 21st century has brought flourishing research on burmite and a considerable increase in its production. The most interesting discoveries from this period include those made by Lambert and Wu (see Poinar et al. 2008), who designated burmite’s parent tree as the araucaria in 2002, while Tappert at al. (2013) described Cupressaceae as its botanical source (see Vávra 2015) and Cruickshank and Ko’s research (2003) confirmed Crockerell’s thesis about its Cretaceous origin.
