DescriptionFACET-CUT AMBER "GEMSTONE"
As the prehistoric resin oozed down the trunk of its tree, anything caught in its path was preserved forever, encased in a golden prison of fossilization, know today as amber. It is extremely rare, therefore, that one finds large samples exhibiting complete clarity. The present example is one such rarity, of such beauty and deep golden brown coloring that it is only fitting that it should have been polished and facet-cut into the shape of a gemstone. It measures 2¾ x 2¼ x 2 inches and weighs in at an impressive 100 grams.
