Burmese Amber with insect inclusions
Beautiful Cretaceous amber, 100 million years old.
These peices were mined near Tanai in Katchin State Burma. Also known as Burmite, this is the hardest of ambers and wears well as jewellery.
These peices are reminders of the ancient world as they are from the age of the dinosaurs.
