The following list of Amber mines focuses on mines in the Cordillera Septentrional, a mountain range located between the coastal city of Puerto Plata and the secret capital of the Dominican Republic, the city of Santiago. There are two main arteries connecting the two cities, one highway taking the long way around the range, while the shortest and scenic road cuts straight through. The scenic road, known as the Carretera Turstica, the Tourist Road, has much history to it and it shows. The former nations dictator Trujillo built a luscious residence alongside it with its own private coffee plantation, and had the famous revolutionists the Mirabal Sisters brutally executed just a kilometer down the road (the incident was depicted in the movie In the Time of the Butterflies, featuring Salma Hayek).

But there is also something we call "ultra blue amber" which is visible in almost any kind of light. This is extremely rare, hard to get and - of course - the most expensive kind of Dominican blue amber - Dominikte mavi kehribar. And - of course - there is everything in between, never the same, because it is the beauty of nature and not a semi-industrial product like reconstituted and enhanced material from some other countries. Amber from the Dominican Republic is renowned for the diversity of fossils and inclusions it contains, the three rare "treasures", which are scorpions, lizards and frogs but also many other "bugs" in amber, like pseudo scorpion, fly, damsel fly, dragon fly, termite in amber. Therfore, we also offer fossil amber with bugs in amber. Our Dominican Blue Amber is the REAL thing, natural amber just the way it comes from the mines. While the mystery around the origin of its color has not been cleared, one thing is sure: Dominican Blue Amber is beautiful and it is extremely rare. Since Dominican amber is found in different mines, the quality varies. The really good stuff c omes from only three or four mines out of the dozen or so available. The difference lies in transparency, color and size, even shape, and ultimately price. For those uninitiated it is easy to mistaken Dominican amber for Dominican amber. Understandably. It takes a trained eye -- better yet, two -- to separate a batch of raw pieces.

Blue Amber Information

By Mr. Blue Amber and Alec Corday.

The purpose of this site is to act as an information portal for Dominican Blue Amber.

Amber is supposed to be amber color, right? Wrong. There is the original color of amber, yellow, orange, honey, cognac or the kind. But there also is cream, cherry, red, green and even blue as the rarest of all.

Up to this day many people do not believe in the existence of "BLUE" amber.
This we want to change.

Blue Amber Heap

Is Blue Amber truly blue?

Dominican blue amber is blue, but not in the way you might think. The pieces below are taken in natural daylight on two different surfaces.

Blue Amber on Black and White

When natural light strikes Blue Amber on a white surface, the light particles pass right through, and then are refracted off the white surface. Result: the Blue Amber has a slight blue hue. When the same natural light particles strike the Amber on a black surface, the light particles don't refract off the black surface, thus refracting off the actual Amber. Hydrocarbons in the Blue Amber turn the sun's ultraviolet light into blue light particles, resulting in the famous glow of Blue Amber.

This effect is only possible in the Dominican Republic Blue Amber category. Any other Amber (such as Baltic Amber) will not display this phenomenon.


  • What is the overall difference between BLUE AMBER and Ordinary Amber?


  • It turns blue in natural sunlight and any other light source that has a slight component of UV (Ultra Violet) light because of its fluorescence. The process in Blue Amber is surprisingly similar to phosphor. Under long wave UV light it has an extremely strong reflection, almost white.

    (Imagine wht this does to your blue amber jewelry when you go "clubbing"!)

  • Why has no one heard about BLUE AMBER before?

  • One of the reasons why Dominican Amber and Blue Amber in particular are not as well known as other types of Amber is because the valuable nature of it was never quite apparent to the population in this part of the "New" World. And the most important reason is: There is only very little of it found, which makes it an extremely rare and very exclusive gem material.

    Although the native (now extinct) Taino Indians gave a gift of Dominican Amber to Columbus, the Dominican Amber trade did not truly pick up until sixty or seventy years ago. That is because in its raw or rough form, at first glance fluorescent Dominican Amber looks like an ordinary rock and did not call much attention. Dominican Amber and mainly BLUE Dominican Amber remained elusive and a collector secret for a long time.
