Buy Blue Amber

We either have, source or produce for you blue amber pieces of all kinds. Stock always depends what is found in the mines. Therefore prices are flexible and the market is constantly changing. We have our contacts directly into the mines and are partners in some of them. Therefore we are always aware of what is available and are your best source. Please contact us or go directly to our Blue Amber Catalog.

We also produce beads of different quality, cabochons, free size beads and nuggets as well as whole sets for different applications like worry beads, necklaces and bracelets. You will find much information on our site

In some months, due to the climate or vacation time, mines are closed. Some customers let us know their needs ahead of time and we reserve a stock exclusively for them to cause no interruption in their factory lines.

Due to a constant movement we don’t have much stock laying around, but even for items you don’t see on our Blue Amber Catalog, our delivery times are rather short because we don’t depend on one single mine. Beginning of the century we were the only ones who promoted blue amber internationally and therefore we have more experience than any of the newcomers you will find on the market these days.

Dominican Blue Amber is natural amber, the way it comes from the mines – without enhancement in any way.

Since there is much interest for blue amber, mainly for the top quality please excuse that we can’t offer you a catalog. The stock moves too fast. Please contact us to see what we have available at this moment. Also feel free to ask any question you have.

Is it AMBER or BLUE?

Blue amber is blue, but not the way you might think. When sunlight strikes the Blue Amber on a white surface the light particles pass right through and are refracted by the white surface.

The result: the Blue amber looks almost like any other Dominican amber, only with a slight blue hue. But on a black surface, the light particles can’t refract, so it is the Amber that refracts, and the hydrocarbons in the Blue Amber turn the sun’s ultraviolet light into blue light particles. The result: the famous blue glow of Blue Amber. Find more information at

We offer you all qualities of rough (or semi-polished) blue amber, from ultra-blue to the sky-blue and everything in between.

Maybe you wonder why have only a few heard about natural Blue Amber from the Dominican Republic? Very simple: There is extremely little of it and in its AAA quality it is more rare (and sometimes more expensive) than gold and diamonds. As a result, Blue Amber is very exclusive material for precious gems.

Even when the mining and sale of Dominican amber began in the sixties and seventies of the last century, for a long time BLUE Amber was only a Collector’s item known to a selected few. Matter of fact, up to this date not even the common Dominican citizen has heard of it. Mainly Asian and Far East customers cherish the top-top quality.

Other Amber Colors

Blue amber is the rarest, but only a small part of the amber found in the Dominican Republic. Dominican amber can be found in many colors. The “amber” amber, yellow and honey colored amber are common. But, there is also red and green, even the black. We don’t have the cream color or white you will find in the Baltic countries.

According to renown scientists, Dominican amber is 20 to 40 million years old. (see:  Study by Dr. George O. Poinar Jr., an entomologist at the University of California at Berkeley, with Dr. Raul J. Cano of the California Polytechnic Institute at San Luis Obispo, Dr. David W. Roubik of the Smithsonian Institution, and Hendrik N. Poinar, New York Times, October 29, 2006.)

But we can guarantee that all of our amber is natural, the way it is found in our mines, just cut and polished. We have not “enhanced” it or changed it in any way like heat treated to produce the different colors or made transparent by boiling oil or heated up and cooled down to produce the “sun spangles” (flints) and melted and cleared in vacuum chambers (autoclaved). There is nothing against these methods used in the Baltic’s as long as the customer is made aware of it.

In fact, if you are interested in lower priced amber, even know someone who can sell you modified Colombian Copal -often called “Caribbean Amber“- for a reasonable price, always informing the customer in a fair way what he is about to buy. There is also much information about what should be considered Natural Amber at
