Characteristics of the dazzling Blue amber

Amber is neither a rock crystal nor an inorganic material. It is the fossilized sap of a prehistoric tree. It started out as a gum veiled to restore a wound. The gum protects the tree from getting affected by any fungal infection. When the tree ultimately decked and started to decompose the liquid persisted. After the natural changes in the Earth the fluid continued to stabilize from the burden and temperatures that obviously shapes in such circumstances. This hardened liquid gets attached with some organisms oozing from the tree and also polarizes in the process making it a unique stone.

Different types of Amber stones:

There are different types of Amber stone available and in different colors. Most common of them are yellow or golden amber (Baltic Amber), black amber (it is not a crystal clear amber, but is also very popular), Green amber (found mainly in the Dominican Republic), White amber, Red amber (also known as ‘Cherry Amber’) and last and most popular Blue Amber stone of DR Fine Jewels (found in the Dominican Republic).

Dominican Blue Amber:

The coloration process of Blue Amber happens, when regular sunlight strikes it on a white background, the light specks pass through the stone diverting off the white surface giving the stone a light blue color. The hydrocarbons in this stone turn the ultraviolet light of the sun into blue luminous elements, subsequent giving in the famed glow of Blue color.

This significance is only probable with the Blue colored Amber from Dominican Republic. Any other Amber like as in the Baltic Amber does not show this spectacle. The main dissimilarity between blue colored Amber and regular Amber is that it gives away the tint of blue when exposed in a regular sunlit and any other light basis that has a minor factor of Ultra Violet light because of its fluorescence.

The polycyclic fragrant hydrocarbons, transported through a pyrolysis practice that is hurled with the means of light, unwind in their earthly state, retain high-vitality, bright photons and re-discharge them as lower-vitality unmistakable photons, as indicated by the observance bend of the specific fluorophore. 

As of late, optical assimilation, fluorescence and time-determined fluorescence estimations in Dominican ambers have been accounted for. These studies demonstrate that the "blue" mixed bag uncovers an extraordinary fluorescence emanation in the noticeable wavelength locale. It is somewhere around 430 and 530 nm, with ghostly peculiarities ordinary of sweet-smelling hydrocarbons. Despite what might be expected, the Dominican "red" and "yellow" golden mixed bags have a much weaker and featureless discharge; albeit still do have certain fluorescence. The procedure in blue, Amber is shockingly like phosphor.

There are a number of web based companies selling such blue colored Amber. This particular colored stone comes at a high price and has a high demand. But there are fraud organizations selling fake and artificial stone in the name of Amber stone. So, it is best advised to opt for a reliable and certified source to get this dazzling Stone.
