A rather large, unpolished chunk of Amber makes up this hand specimen. It is in excellent condition, showing almost none of the vitreous luster and conchoidal texture that denotes any damage. Instead, its surfaces are rounded and worn to a dull waxy or resinous luster. It has a moderate golden color and is transparent, though one cannot determine its clarity due to its weathered finish. This also prevents one from determining the presence or types of inclusions that may be inside! One could easily cut a face into the piece or start to polish an area with an emery cloth or buff pad.
