More frequently amber is discovered without insect inclusions. Sometimes large masses of amber is found. Below are a number of pieces of Dominican amber that have been polished. These are some of the larger and more impressive 'amber chunks'. Large pieces such as these are VERY infrequently found. The resin formation and deposition necessary for this type of piece does not happen very often.

1. Quite a large chunk of Dominican amber. This is about 5 inches x 2 x 2 inches - although I consider this irregular in shape. It is about 170 grams (between 1/4 and 1/2 half a pound). Clear inside except for an ant and some beetle waste. Beautiful piece.
2. 1. If you are looking for a chunk, then look no farther, 1.3 pounds (578 grams) of pure Dominican amber. This is a huge piece - and it looks nice. You can use this to polish or it is heavy enough to use as a paper weight.
3. Clear throughout, this 19 gram chunk is a winner. You will like the photos of this beautiful piece. This is a very impressive, clear piece of Dominican amber. About 2 inches long.

4. Now here is a big one! 720 grams (about a pound and a half) in weight and about 6 x 5 x 1.5 inches. This behemoth is actually heavy to hold! You might be able to use it in weight lifting! It is mostly dark brown in color and would make an impressive addition to any collection


5. Here is a chunk that has a lot of potential. It is rather clear and weighs 39 grams. This is about 2.5 inches long.

6. Great piece - this is very large and very clear. This is a magnificent piece. It is about 54 grams. One heck of piece for anyone's collection. It is about 2.5 x 2 x 1 inches.
7. This piece is beautiful. 240 grams and VERY clear throughout. Supurb piece of amber. You will just love this piece.
8. 61 grams piece, slightly gold in color. Rather clear piece that is about 2.5 x 2 x .75 inches - big piece.
9. 48 grams of Wonderful color. This has interesting colors to it. About 2 x 2 x 1 inch.
10. 27.2 grams, unknown color with unpolished edges. This will be fun.
 11. I like this one. Perfect size, in fact it is just the right size to hold in your hand. The weight is 159 grams, which is .4 pounds.
12. Cool piece of unpolished amber. 109.4 grams of good solid yellow amber ready for anything from a guitar pick to jewelry.
13. 26 grams of very clear amber that I think has a good red color to it. Very nice piece, with a very good price.

 14. 34 grams of beautiful amber. Very clear inside and just a lovely piece.

15. This one has some interesting debris inside. Very clear, but it has a definate debris field. It is cool. 33 grams of amber.
