Although Ethiopian Amber may be new to the Gem and Mineral world, it has remained hidden from site for the last 95 million years. Born in the Cretaceous Period, this rare gemstone is offering scientists a peek into ancient Africa when flowering plants blossomed across the Earth and the animal world scrambled to adapt. Amber from the Cretaceous period is primarily found in North America and Eurasia. This Ethiopian amber is the first major discovery of its kind from the African continent, and the diversity of life discovered in this deposit promises to reveal new information about Africa’s evolutionary past.
Ethiopian Amber is prized due to the rich green colors it produces. Scientists are studying this type of Amber to try and determine which plant is the source and what could cause this Amber to differ from all others.
