DescriptionMULTIPLE LEAVES IN AMBER
It was Pliny the Elder in the first century of the Christian era who first surmised that Amber must at some point have had a liquid form, in order to entrap the insects and floral debris sometimes found within. This large nugget boasts a profusion of such inclusions, at least seven perfectly preserved leaves and other small fragments of floral debris, held in suspended animation for all eternity in a gorgeous golden prison. The Amber boasts a particularly rich, dark honey-gold color, with characterful areas of darker orange blush, brought to a gleaming polished finish and measuring 2⅞ inches wide.
Estimate: $2,500 - $3,500.
