The Amber World Museum    "When trees cried golden tears"
For thousands of years, and in many cultures, amber had its significance as a very personal adornment of great value and beauty.
Dominican Amber has received special international recognition because of its purity, diversity of colors and the rare inclusions of scientific and collectible value.
Here in this museum they walk you through the process in which amber is created from  the moment the amber resin comes out of the tree to the creation of the jewelry made from this beautiful unique resin. There are samples of eye-opening stone collections.
