  How amber is formed? 

 How long does the resin to fossilize and become amber?

 

As the resin fossilizes, it becomes part of the ground and turns into amber over millions of years. Scientists believe that most of the amber that is found is from the Cretaceous or Tertiary periods, making it between 30 and 90 million years old. 

  

Amber is extremely important to modern science because it provides the only truly worty window into a past when exotic insects and other strange creatures roamed an ancient world, most of which have been extinct now for millions of years.

Why dominican blue amber is blue?

 

Here in Dominican Republic, amber (ambar) is usually yellow, reddish or green, and some rare specimens are blue.  

Blue Amber is a unique and natural phenomenon.

Although several studies and theories have been carried out, the science does not fully understand why the Dominican blue amber shows this characteristic.    The blue colour is confined exclusively to the surface because does not result from pigmentation in which case colour would be reflected in any light, regardless of the colour of the background being used Instead, blue is due to a fluorescence phenomenon which refract blue light.   

This phenomenon is best prized in natural light or direct sunlight, or white LED light, preferably on a dark background. Thus, the light passing  directly through amber produces the peculiarity blue glow which characterizes Dominican Blue Amber.
