This small piece of polished Baltic Amber has the classic pale golden color and the bright, resinous luster that one expects from this material. It is transparent and relatively clear, though there are several internal fractures and round tension fissures clearly visible. There are also several inclusions, the most notable being a tiny spider (see the close-up image).
