Sumatran Blue Amber

Really enjoy experimenting with the Indonesian Amber. Each piece is a new mystery.
The variety and variables are endless fun, and the Blue Amber is no exception.
In most pieces the "blue" is a reflection of whatever the light source is. I gather the "proper" way to judge the quality of the blue in this amber is in natural sunlight, but it also has an interesting fluorescent quality.
Incandescent light will show some of the blue, flourescent light won't. But that LED will make 'em pop!

First pic is a cab of regular Indonesian Black Amber.
Then two of the "blue" cabs, 3 pics of each.
First pic fluorescent and incandescent light.
Second pic with LED and Long wave UV.
Third pic Long wave UV only.
Last pic for the fun of it. Smiley
