Blue Dominican Amber

———We specialize in wholesale distribution of rare Blue Dominican Amber (ask for our MOQ). While official figures are unavailable, it is estimated that top-grade Blue Dominican Amber is found in quantities of up to 50 kilograms per year. High-grade Blue Amber likely has an annual output of approximately 250 kilograms, while the regular grade quality does not exceed 900 kilograms per year. The latter is the grade we commonly offer, as high quality blue amber is rare and expensive.

In comparison, gem-quality diamonds have a staggering annual production of 130 million carats, equivalent to 26,000 kilograms or 26 metric tons. Despite common belief, diamonds are not rare within the Earth’s interior. There are extensive diamond resources deep beneath the Earth’s surface, with scientists estimating a quadrillion tons of diamonds to be present (CNN). Furthermore, diamonds, being composed of carbon atoms arranged into a crystal structure, can be easily synthesized in a laboratory, even from humble sources such as peanuts or the ashes of loved ones.

However, as stated by Nicky Oppenheimer of De Beers, “I don’t want diamonds to be discounted. I abhor it. What is tantalizing is that at the luxury end – the famous blue box of Tiffany’s – there are brands getting the margins and markups enjoyed in the luxury goods business as a whole. We want to see stores pushing the preciousness of diamonds rather than treating them as a commodity you can discount.” In light of this, the rarity of diamonds is called into question.

Given its scarcity and rarer nature compared to diamonds, one might wonder why Blue Dominican Amber isn’t more expensive. The answer lies in the fact that top-grade Blue Dominican Amber commands a high price level, reflecting its exceptional quality. It belongs to the highest price range among ambers, with fluctuations in market value influenced by the aforementioned factors.

Therefore, if you come across a piece or even beads of AAA blue amber (add an “A” or two) being offered at an unusually low price (and certified, mind you!!), you know what you’re looking at. When it’s too good to be true…

The bluish amber found in Indonesia tends to have a purplish hue rather than a true blue, while Mexican amber leans towards a greenish shade. Additionally, certain Asian and Russian companies claim to produce blue “Dominican” amber, even providing certificates.

Therefore, and to avoid any misunderstandings, we exclusively sell Blue Dominican Amber rough directly sourced from the mines in the Dominican Republic.
