Amber - MA361
Tumbled Specimen of Translucent Amber from Chiapas, Mexico
5" x 2" x 3.5" / 361g
This tumbled specimen of amber (i.e., fossilized tree resin) was mined from the state of Chiapas, in southern Mexico, where the veins running through the strata are estimated to be ca. 23-30 million years old. This translucent, honey-colored specimen contains a brown, twig-like (flora) inclusion. This is a perfect piece for either a collector or lapidarist, who can make some high-quality cabochons from this beautiful specimen.
