Amber is fossilized tree resin used for jewelry, decoration, medicine, and perfume. Blue amber is a rare amber exhibiting a rare coloration. This variety comes from the resin of the extinct tree species Hymenaea protera. It can be found in the amber mines in Dominican Republic and Indonesia. The greenish blue color observed in some amber is actually fluorescence stimulated by ultraviolet (UV) light. A previous study described the color as iridescence over a yellow background, but it is in fact a surface fluorescence. Thus, when light beams into the amber, it sometimes appears yellow or yellowish red. This Blue Amber was mined in Sumatra Island, Indonesia.
