Dominican Amber (La Toca Fm., 20.43-13.65 Ma)


Small run of amber from the La Cumbre Mine, weighing 2.4g, and measuring (mm) 37x13x8. It consists of numerous successive flows, and contains several small single-phase bubbles; as this specimen does, several others I have (from the same 2kg lot) from this locality also display an interesting "schiller" effect when adjusted in-hand (light reflects off of the flow lines' surface). Biological inclusions are a possibility with this specimen, though I will need to prepare it to confirm this.
