Blue amber is amber exhibiting a rare blue coloration. It is most commonly found in the amber mines in the mountain ranges around Santiago, Dominican Republic, but also in the eastern parts of the Dominican Republic. Although little known due to its rarity, it has been around since the discovery of Dominican amber.
Fluorescence is the process where molecules absorb high energy light which excites electrons into higher energy molecular orbitals. As these electrons relax back into their ground states, the energy difference is released as a photon, therefore emitting light at a higher wavelength or lower energy than the originally absorbed light.
This effect is only possible in some specimens of Dominican amber[6 ( the best) category, in some Mexican ambers from Chiapas and some ambers from Indonesia.
It's not possible to fake such a effects.

    Response by seller
    Dear Sir!
    May you please provide additional information, regarding the publication of a "neutral"opinion, for the received amber and silver set?
    In my opinion you have purchased an excellent piece of amber, in addition at a very low price.
    It is of utmost importance to me to receive honest and reliable reviews, which is why I will be extremely grateful if you could express your opinion in a more detailed and responsible form.
    I sent the parcel next day after receiving your payment.
    Unfortunately, I'm not responsible for post delay.
