The Process Of Entrapment
As these resin secreted by the plants were meant for the protection of the plants only and was free flowing, they trapped several insects and plant parts like leaves and twigs in their sticky contents. Sometimes flowers, fruit seedsand fungi also got stuck. The gaseous secretion of these organic compounds created bubbles inside which even gave a better look to the stone. Then the polymerization takes place for millions of years making the resin the permanent prison for the entrapped living organism which becomes fossils which gives rise to Amber with Insects. These ambers become the evidence of the past to the future from which the next generation can study a lot about taxonomy, evolution and the existence of various flora and fauna.
Study Of The World
As ambers are found in many places like the Baltic region, Dominican regions and most parts of The Central and South America a large variety of the biological existence can be done from it as it falls under the tropical forest area. Even animals and insects of the cold regions of Arctic can also be studied as ambers are also found in these areas. Scientist can study the society if the insects and plants from the fossils entrapped inside. They can know the type of insects and relate it with the world of today to find the process of evolution.
The Social Aspect
It is clear from the fossilized content of the ambers that the insects like bees, ants and termites are very social. Scientists have found and proved tis fact and has said that these insects played their role from the time as early as 20 to 30 million years ago. But that idea has changed as some researchers have got 100 million year old amber from Myanmar which will establish the fact it existed even before that time. These evidences will eradicate any contradiction about the behavioral pattern and diversity. It will prove the social aspects of the insects proving their habit to live and stay together in harmony and for a common purpose.
So, when you visit Drfinejewels.com to buy an amber stone embedded jewelry and find an Amber With Insects embedded in it try to figure out the way of their living in the society millions and millions of years ago.You can also come to know about the types of materials these insects used to build their homes and colonies by the type of debris that you can find around the fossilized insect. It truly is the tool which can take you back into the time.
