World Largest Amber
Amber is a fossilized resin. Geological evidence suggests the aromatic amber resin, produced from a variety of trees buried alongside ancient forests 15 to 150 million years ago, hardened into the present natural stone form.
Baltic amber is the most popular variety and is sourced from the Amber Coast, Russia. Amber is also found in Denmark, Estonia, Germany, Latvia, Lithuania, Poland, Sweden, Ukraine and the United Kingdom.
The Dominican is known for its striking blue amber stones. Canada, Colombia and Mexico are other countries across the Atlantic to have amber producing locations.
In Asia, Indonesia and Myanmar are home to large unexploited amber deposits. The Myanmar amber is among the best, featuring rare fossil insects and spiders. Indonesian amber has also been classified in the same class as the exotic Dominican blue amber.
