This beautiful specimen is genuine amber. It is not plastic or glass. Burmese amber, also known as Burmite or Kachin amber, is amber from the Hukawng Valley in northern Myanmar. The amber is dated to around 99 million years old, during the earliest part of the Cenomanian age of the Late Cretaceous.
This fully polished specimen of all-natural authentic Dominican amber from the mines in the Dominican Republic contains beautifully preserved small bivalve shells and hemipteran insect. The hemipteran isn’t quite uncommon, but the bivalves certainly make this piece truly unique!
