Amber, so cool! Is any of it clear or is it all opaque? Love that geode too. :wub:

Gery, the first pic had what looked like another very small piece of amber next to it or a piece of carnelian agate, great find!!!!

Very nice. If I was with hunting with you, I would beg you to go look for more amber!!!! I just bought 25 grams of Dominican Republic amber, all rough and with inclusions. :D

What is that crystalline mineral in the upper left of the 1st pic in your 2nd post - pyrite?

i think it could be some kind of silica,the black parts are carbon from the Araucaria trees of the albian,from those comes the amber
