amberica west


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. 27.7 grams of good Dominican amber. About 2.5 x 1.5 x 1 inches.

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. 197.6 grams of amber. Rather large, this is almost a half pound on amber (that is a lot). Lots of possibilities with this one.

4. 74.8 grams - good piece of amber.


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.

7. 198.6 grams of amber. This is a large piece and as I look at it, feel that the interior may be fractured. So I am discounting this greatly to $1 per gram.
8. 61 grams piece, slightly gold in color. Rather clear piece that is about 2.5 x 2 x .75 inches - big piece.
9. 329.7 grams to this giant. This one I also feel is fractured on the inside and thus will discount this to $1 per gram (that is a heck of a deal.)
10. 27.2 grams, unknown color with unpolished edges. This will be fun.
 11. 101.1 grams. Interesting color to this one, black to blue - a particularly nice piece.
12. 84.4 grams - like the one above, this is a dark color. Good piece.
