Tree resin turned into luxurious baubles. Learn and admire (and if you want, buy).
A showcase of a semiprecious substance identified closely with the Dominican Republic
Prehistory meets luxury in one of the capital’s more unusual museums – a celebration of fossilised tree resin transformed into prized jewelry (a speciality of the Dominican Republic as the country is one of the two primary sources of amber in the world). There are also pieces for sale here.
