Inclusion in the stone
One remarkable feature of the Dominican blue amber from Drfinejewels, is its inclusion that is caused by the insects, plants, and water and air bubbles. The visibility and the placement of the inclusion are of utmost importance in determining the price of the amber. Termites, ants and gnats, are generally found in these stones, but these inclusions are always not situated in the center. Often due to the struggle of these organisms the integrity of the stone is threatened and causes internal fractures.
