Important Support Notes: As Most Knowledgeable Individuals Can Research the Internet, They Will Find Most Blue Amber is Derived From the Dominican Republic, But is Also Distributed and Located in Small Quantities in Mexico, and Fairly Notable Deposits Have Been Found Throughout the Indonesian Islands. But it Looks More Like a Baltic Sea Cherry or Cognac Amber in Color?
Yes, This Amber Variety Typically Appears as a Medium-Dark Cognac to Cherry Color Appearance, But it Has an Internal Bluish to Violet Fluorescent Glow Under Different Ultra Violet Conditions (Artificial or Natural Light), Hence, its Color Identification is "Blue Amber". This is Directly Attributed to the Resin Type From Two Completely Different Tree Species. Resins From the Dominican Republic and Indonesia Were Produced From Prehistoric Hymenaea protera Trees That Emitted Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons. These Hydrocarbons Were Produced Through a Thermal Polymerization Process Initiated Via Irradiation (The Natural Sun's Rays).
When the Hydrocarbons Relaxed to Their Ground State, They Would Absorb High-Energy Ultraviolet Photons and Re-emit Them as Lower-Energy Visible Photons (aka Fluorescence). It is These Fluorescent Hydrocarbons That Are Responsible For the Blue Iridescence. This Amber Variety is Associated With Having the Highest Price Per Gram Value Out of All Other Amber Varieties. It is Very Rare, Is Available in Very Limited Quantities, and its Global Distribution is Found in Only a Few Locations On Earth.Only 200-400 Pounds is Mined From Indonesia Per Year, Which Makes It Very Valuable and Notably Very Expensive. Similar to Dominican Blue Amber, Sumatran Blue Amber is Classified as Type 1C Retinite, or Amber Associated With Bell-Pit Mining Located Near Coal Seams. Retinite is a General Name Applied to Prehistoric Fossilized Resins, Particularly Those From Beds of Brown Coal, Which Are Near Amber in Appearance, But Contain Little or No Succinic Acid as Baltic Sea Amber Does.
