AMBER

Amber (or, technically, resinite) is fossilized tree resin (not sap), which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic times. Good quality amber is used for the manufacture of ornamental objects and jewelry. There are five classes of amber, defined on the basis of their chemical constituents.Because it originates as a soft, sticky tree resin, amber sometimes includes animal and plant material as inclusions.

MEXICAN AMBER

. From the latest research it appears that is from the late Oligocene some 24-30 Million years ago. Baltic amber is usually twice as old.This amber is natural (not treated like most baltic amber). The colour is totally natural and impressive. It is known for its inclusions. It is from a tropical forest and as with Dominican amber it is from an extinct tree species in the genus Hymenaec. This genus still exists in the south and central America.
