Origin: This Indonesian amber dates back to the mid to late Miocene period, approximately 20 million years ago. Amber often occurs in conjunction with coal, as coal and amber form in similar waysboth start as plant matter, and slowly harden over millions of years. However, while coal is created from plants that have decayed into peat, amber is formed when tree resin is fossilized. Under the right conditions, oily substances known as terpenes are driven out of the resin, which causes it to harden.

Amber is perhaps best known for its ability to envelope small organisms like fungi, plant matter, and insects. These are known as inclusions, and give a unique insight into prehistoric life due to their incredible state of preservation.

Our Indonesian amber pieces measure approximately 1 to 2 inches across. They are translucent, and shine a brilliant reddish-orange when backlit (such as in photos 3, 4, and 5). Each comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.

Actually, many relics are able to be owned by anyone.

Typically, museums only want to display items that are either very rare or incredibly well preserved. This leaves many items that don't make the cut, and these are able to be owned by individuals.

While the items we sell aren't "museum grade," they still carry with them the same amount of history and uniqueness. Each relic was still hand made by a person, hundreds or even thousands of years ago.

One of our core values is not to damage or alter any of the artifacts we sell.

History needs to be preserved—after all, there is a limited amount of it that survives—but it is also something to be shared with the masses. For this reason, we put our relics in sturdy display cases that are safe to handle, but are mindful that someday the relic may need to be taken out again.

No glue or resin holds the items in place. Instead, we're developed our own method for holding the relics securely in their displays using pressure alone. In fact, any of our relics can be removed in their original condition by simply opening the display case.
