The mineral to be beautiful, which is characterised by a clear and shiny surface is usually. Amber inclusions usually is the mineral to be beautiful, which is characterised by a clear and shiny surface. The situation is somewhat different with Baltic amber. The more origin organic in this mineral remaining stuck”plants, insects or even animals are, the more valuable is it. Petrified flora, fungus, insects, or even small reptiles in the piece of amber are called inclusions (inclusions).
How come amber inclusions (inclusions)? Many coniferous forests have grown 40 million years ago in the present Eastern Europe. From the trunks of some conifers, resin, which ran through the bark and fell running down on the ground. Later succeeded in the soil, where it is crystallized in millions of years in the current amber and polimerisiert. During the ice age was this arable land in the Baltic Sea. As resin construction tribe flowed, it attracted various insects, who fell into the trap of the viscous resin and remained there for eternity. So emerged in amber the inclusions with prehistoric butterflies, ants and other insects and small lizards.
When the resin on the floor fell, also the flora came in the Harz mountains. Flowers, leaves and tree bark pieces remained in amber until today various fragments of plants, so, not only beautiful in the honey-colored amber look but also gives much information of modern science over time flora and insects. What is the value of an amber? In ancient Roman times, Bernstein was estimated even higher than gold. The value of Bernstein’s depends on the inclusion (Inkluse). The inclusions in amber is better preserved and visible, the higher is the value of amber. The most valuable amber are small lizards with very rare insects, spiders and even reptiles. These are valuable pieces of science as well as for collectors. The amber Gets a specific value, if it is used for the production of unique and artistic jewelry. Unique brooches, amber necklaces, rings, bracelets, which were produced with amber with insects, are particularly highly regarded. Fake amber inclusions of Baltic amber is not the only sort of amber in the world. The young amber Copal (Copal) is produced in Colombia, when heating it merges and then you can cool him off and harden in the piece of amber. Quite simply, this principle is used in the forgery of the amber with inclusions. Some collectors were cheated when they bought large amber with inclusions, and as it turned out later, that these inclusions still alive so far, and drowned not million years ago in the thick pine resin. The counterfeits began to widen in the years 1900 in New Zealand. Many technologies are now known and collector easily distinguish real amber from honey-coloured and hardened rubber or soft Kopal, the insects still alive have been inserted. The Jewelers at once recognize these counterfeits and not deal with them. The amber with inclusions can decorate each home and the amber jewellery can be unique relics, which are inherited from one generation to the other. Amber is a hot natural mineral that causes an allergy, therefore is recommended to wear it on the skin and not on the clothes. The Baltic amber with inclusions is the most valuable and beautiful amber in the world!
