Description

Currently, you may purchase from our Albuquerque and Santa Fe retail stores. Our online sales are temporarily suspended.

This high quality amber pendant features an insect that has been frozen in time through a process called polymerization. It has a simple sterling silver wire-wrapped bail, and would look nice with a simple chain or a cord. A wonderful gift for your favorite fossil aficionado, it comes ready for display in a clear plastic box with magnifying lid.

Dominican Amber is the fossilized resin of the Hymenea protera, a now-extinct coniferous tree that once flourished throughout the region. Dominican Amber differs from Baltic Amber in that it is almost always transparent. Additionally, because of the almost year-round warm weather, Dominican Amber generally has a higher concentration of fossils such as insects or lizards.

Fossil Information: Amber is actually fossilized resin from prehistoric pine trees, ranging from 20 to 60 million years old. You can often find spectacular insect and plant specimens--bees, spiders, stems, and roots--trapped in the resin and caught in air pockets. Such organic matter can typically be seen with the naked eye, and under magnification the intricate details are revealed.

Metaphysical Properties: Amber has been used through history to purify the environment, body, mind, and spirit. It is also said to help in the making of difficult choices.
