Flower In Dominican Amber
Time: Oligocene - Miocene
inch): Amber: 15 mm long, 13 mm across, 1.0 grams
Region near Santiago, Dominican Republic
This is a fine 5 mm flower readily seen within this specimen of
Dominican amber. Flowers are uncommon inclusions. When they are
found, they are typically those of the Hymenaea tree that was the
source of the sap flows that eventually became the amber itself.
This is one such example, in a fine state of preservation.
