Amber is known as a fossilized resin from coniferous trees, extinct in some areas of coniferous forest and muzzle the world and they account for thousands of years ago. Amber is not at all groups of precious stones metal and organic materials but the sense of fossilized organic plant material. Therefore, he is fragile and coniferous trees cause odors when burned or rubbed by hand and graded for color in the habit of yellow to dark yellow, and there is either circular shapes or blocks of irregular shape or in pills or drops. Is crisp and sends a little smell acceptable when rubbed hands, and when burned with flames made shiny and smell and becomes a negative electric friction. There are varieties of insects extinct, sometimes wrapped in samples of amber. It should be noted that the Dominican amber is not improved with heat, or treatment of oil, nor is cleaned Balootoclav like a lot of sperm the Baltic States. Add to it does not use any amber-ROM. These techniques are not known even in those areas. Also that the colors blue, green, and purple can be seen due to sunlight UV and other sources of light. This means that the amber fluorescent As a result, it can also be distinguished from the amber which has been artificially colored and improve the bay of being genuine.

Composition of amber

Material consists of semi-solid amorphous organic and non-regular excreted through the pockets and channels plant cells. The Amber heterogeneous characteristics in terms of structure, but consistent in terms of bodies spruce multiple is more tendencies soluble in alcohol and liquid ether and chloroform (chloroform), which are connected and combined with other elements (bituminous substance) that do not melt or degrade, and the amber is a group of chemical polymer which federations of two parts or more of the composite to form a composite with a molecular weight greater sense of the transformation compound that is to last from several parts of the same. And because he is soft and sticky, it contains within it, in many cases, insects and vertebrates and small seeds or foreign objects that stick to it during the transition to a state ossification, and there are also varieties of insects extinct sometimes wrapped in samples of amber

Amber color

Whereabouts of the amber

Was obtained in ancient times from the southern coast of the Baltic Sea and the Dominican Republic still exists until now. There are also small amounts in Sicily, Romania, Siberia, Greenland, Myanmar (formerly Burma), Australia, the United States. The countries of the Baltic and extended eastward to Russia and harden the types of insects and rodents differ from other regions, particularly parts of Siberia, one of the largest stocks of the world Then came the Dominican State and each has their own quality of amber is used in the
