Amber is the product of fossilized plant resin, not tree sap. The tree species that produced Amber are now extinct. They included cedars and other conifers and broadleaved trees from the tertiary period, from 65 million to 2.6 million years ago. The most famous source of the world's Amber is the Baltic coast of Russia. In the western hemisphere, there are rich deposits in the Dominican Republic, Mexico, and the state of New Jersey.
Our collection of Prehistoric amber includes both the yellow and cherry types, with various forms of insects and plant residue trapped in them. They are carved into beautiful tear and oval shapes to be used as pendants and other sorts of jewelry. These attractive pieces are ideal as gifts and are an important addition to your collection.
