Atlantic Coastal Plain Amber (Bladen Fm., ~77-75 Ma)
Select pieces of cretaceous (mid-Campanian) amber from North Carolina, weighing roughly 0.7-1.5g each; most pieces found from this locality only weigh under a couple grams, which is typical of most U.S. deposits. Along many portions of the Neuse river, south of Goldsboro, the embankments expose the various members of the Black Creek Group: the Bladen member overlies the older Tar Heel Fm., and underlies the younger Donoho Creek Fm. To date, amber has only been officially described to occur in the Bladen member, and is believed to be of araucarian and/or cupressaceous origin.
