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.

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.
