Amber Fossils:Hold a Moment in Time in Your Hands

Amber fossils have always captivated gem loveres… perhaps because each stone represents a frozen moment in time, with only the mysterious inclusions to hint at its story. The very rare blue amber intrigues collectors with its unsual color and escalating value.
You can purchase both yellow and blue raw amber here by the pound.

Raw Amber’s Background

The stone that so fascinates us today began as a thick, slow-moving sap trickling down rain forest trees millions of year ago. The sticky resin trapped insects, seeds, feathers and any other particles in its path. These inclusions were preserved for all time as amber fossils.

The resin first turned into copal, often uesd as incense. After millions of years the copal further hardened to become amber. Dominican amber is estimated to be 25-40 million years old.

The insects encased within these amber fossils make them very valuable to collectors, scientists and museums because they provide a snapshot of the prehistoric past.

Raw Amber’s Background

Under artifical light, blue amber looks like ordinary amber. But in day light it has a remarkable blue glow.

When cut and polished, blue amber is a highly sought-after gemstone. Its value continues to grow as more consumers are drawn to its complex beauty

Buying Rough Amber

The raw amber we sell(also known as rough amber) comes from mines in the mountains near Santiago. Dominican Republic. We expose and polish one face of each stone so you can see the quality of the amber. This is required by law before rough amber can be exported from the DR.

Our rough amber — both yellow and blue — is sold in one pound batches and single stones. It’s shipped worldwide from our headquaters in Miami, FL. We sell to consumers and retailers, offering all our customers low wholesale prices.
