About Sumatran Amber

Unlike the more known russian amber, the sumatran amber is completely natural.
No treatment at all is given to the original rough material, except cut and polish.


Sumatran Amber is available in many shades among the following colors:



A very special feature of Sumatran Amber is its natural fluorescence.
In many cases the flourescence is observable under normal light; it is of course much more intense under UV light.




Sumatran Amber formation is dated back to Miocene Age (10-20 Ma or older).

More infos about Sumatran Amber


Amber is an organic gemstone derived from fossilized tree resin. Amber is approximately 20-100 millions years old. Most amber is typically found in the Baltic region , while a different variety of amber has recently been discovered in Sumatra, in the South-East Asia. Unlike Baltic amber which may often contain bits of bark, trapped air bubbles, and sometimes insects, Sumatran amber is relatively less included but features dark color areas within its reddish-cognac body that resemble leopard spots.

However, what is more distinct between the two is that Sumatran amber also has an optical feature that displays a reddish hue under incandescent light and a blue fluorescence under UV light. This phenomenon is not observed in Baltic amber. 


Sumatran amber is not heated, clarified, or treated.


As with all organic gemstones, do not use harsh chemical cleaners to clean your amber jewelry piece, but rather use mild soap and warm water, only as needed.
