Dominican Republic Blue Amber

Blue amber is rare, unusual and normally very expensive.

Blue amber is not blue exactly if one looks directly at it. The blue is best seen with incident light coming from behind the observer. All of this amber has a beautiful blue sheen when the light is right! Notice from the sample pictures, that the entire piece is not completely polished. This is because the blue comes through much better if a portion of the amber is left unpolished. You will not commonly find blue amber on the market, it is not very common. For further information on why blue and green amber are those respective colors, go the blue amber page. This is a rare opportunity to acquire unique amber. As you look at the pictures, remember that the blue color does not show up well in these pictures (depends upon how the sun hits the amber).

NOTE: This page does include a lot of colors, they tend to range from blue to green to red to yellow. Sometimes these colors do not show themselves well unless the angle from the sun is just right. We have tried to take a number of images of each piece so that you can see the amber at different angles with the sunlight. I am not going to try and tell you what color they are, I will let you decide from the accompanying images. All of the amber below is of very good quality.
