Comment: My first insect amber, and, oh boy, am I hooked! See the eyes of those creatures? They have been staring out of that stone for millions of years. Since long before the first wo-/men picked up a colored rock. I had always wanted one of those fabulous time-travel-ambers (I once had a cool dinosaur bone, lost over the decades), but I never could afford one of these miracles. As possible only with colored gemstones, a whole new world of life-long learning has opened for me. The over-all grade of 'very good' was set based on my first research into what makes amber quality and the price reflects my buying rate plus lab report, plus labor and overhead; but frankly without knowledge whether these creatures here are rare or more common. There are two: one terrifying, one comical. Some amber costs tens of thousands if a particularly rare fossil is enclosed. As for jewelry, amber is a very light material, meaning it has low density, hence this 2.7 carat is big enough to make a fantastic pendant. The shark-tooth-shape invites a simple cage-setting. There it will also be well protected. See other details under more images (though not all by far). All you need is a 10fold lens (included in our price). The shot below captured direct sunlight: See the golden light reflection on the ground. DSEF report for your peace of mind - this is the real deal, not brown plastic with dirt inside, but creatures, 20 million years old and grass, and hairs, and I dunno what.
