Amber is fossilized tree resin that has hardened over time. Most amber has a hardness between 2.0 and 2.5 on the Mohs scale. It can occur in a range of colors, from whitish to pale yellow to almost black in appearance. The oldest amber dates to the Upper Carboniferous, or about 320 million years ago. By the early Cretaceous it becomes far more abundant and found in correlation with insects.

Small insects and plant matter may be found petrified within this amber, with each piece being unique. Larger "inclusions" of this kind are known to give important insight into prehistoric life, due to their incredible state of preservation. The amber you will receive was found in the Dominican Republic and dates to the Miocene or about 15 to 20 million years ago.
