Embark on a journey through time with our exquisite collection of Dominican Amber. Unlike its more commonly found counterpart, Baltic Amber, Dominican Amber is younger and more elusive, making it a prized gem for collectors and enthusiasts alike.
Immerse yourself in the captivating world of Amber inclusions, where unfortunate animals, insects, plants, and more found themselves entombed in tree resin millions of years ago. Unlike tree sap, this resin slowly hardened through a natural polymerization process, creating a remarkable substance known as Copal. This Copal beautifully preserves the intricate inclusions, freezing them in time for us to marvel at today.
The transformation of Copal into Amber is a testament to the passage of time. Over several million years, the Copal becomes buried deep within the Earth, undergoing a gradual metamorphosis that results in the stunning gemstone we know as Amber. It’s a captivating process that allows us to witness ancient specimens, as if they were captured just yesterday.
To truly appreciate the exquisite details of your Amber inclusion, we recommend using a magnifying aid. Through its lens, you’ll discover a miniature world frozen in time, showcasing an array of specimens such as flies, gnats, midges, beetles, wasps, ants, spiders, cockroaches, seeds, plants, and much more.
Each piece of our Dominican Amber holds the key to an ancient era, preserving the delicate remnants of life that existed long ago. It’s a fascinating glimpse into our planet’s history, capturing the imagination and inspiring awe in all who behold it.
Don’t miss the opportunity to own a piece of this extraordinary natural wonder. Explore our collection of Dominican Amber inclusions and unlock the secrets of the past, preserved for eternity within these captivating gemstones.
