Dominican Amber In-Situ

Here are 5 pieces of amber from famous Chiapas region in Mexico.  Each piece has a number of in-situ  amber specimens.  The rocks are heavy.  I consider this perfect material to show individuals how the amber looks as it is mined.  All amber pieces in the rock are reasonably easy to see.  In fact you can see most of them from the pictures.

I doubt that you can find amber in-situ for sale anywhere else.

Specimen 1

x This first piece is rather large about 4 x 4 x 3 inches, it is irregular .  The weight is just over 760 grams - now that is 1.9 pounds of rock, not amber, although there is a fair bit of amber in this piece.  It is particularly nice.  Not only that, but this has shells all over the back side of the piece.  VERY rare to see something like this.


Specimen 2


About  1.6 pounds of rock.  Nice shaped piece is about 5 inches x 3.5 inches x 2.0 inches.  The piece shows the amber very well in a limestone type of rock.  Good for anyone's collection.  Here is a video of the rock.

Specimen 3

64 grams (2 ounces) with a large piece of amber sitting on top of a rock.  It is about 2 x 2 x 1.5 inches.  Just a lovely piece.  Here is a video of the rock.


Specimen 4

374 grams (13ounces) with a large pieces going throughout the rock.  It is about 4.5 x 3 x 1.5 inches.  Just a lovely piece.  Here is a video of the rock.


Specimen 5

606 grams (1.5 pounds) of rock with amber.  Reminds me of a very heavy snowball.  It is about 3.5 x 3.5 x 3 inches.  Neat piece.
