Unusual rarity - insects in amber from these areas are very rarely seen!

During the process of amber formation a lot of insects have been destroyed by high temperature and pressure!

That’s why the insects in amber from Indonesia occur much less frequently than in Baltic amber. Unique specimens!

Treat for every collector!

Beautiful green 100% natural, untreated amber for collectors.

The green colour is best seen in the sunlight or in the light of a LED flashlight

Some photos were made with LED lamp

With time it may have some natural cracks, or scratches, etc

When the sunlight falls on amber it reflects from the surface and makes the amber seems to have iridescent blue or green tint. However, when it is held against the light, does not reflect sunlight and shows the actual colour. Hydrocarbons located inside the amber turn the sunlight into a blue or green light particles, which, in effect, creates blue or green tint.
