Bijan passed away in Moreover, like ambergris, the resin could be burned as an incense. The resin's most popular use was, however, for ornamentation—easily cut and polished, it could be transformed into beautiful jewelry. Much of the most highly prized amber is transparent, in contrast to the very common cloudy amber and opaque amber.
Opaque amber contains numerous minute bubbles. This kind of amber is known as "bony amber". Although all Dominican amber is fluorescent, the rarest Dominican amber is blue amber. It turns blue in natural sunlight and any other partially or wholly ultraviolet light source.
In long-wave UV light it has a very strong reflection, almost white. Sometimes amber retains the form of drops and stalactites , just as it exuded from the ducts and receptacles of the injured trees. Amber can be classified into several forms. Most fundamentally, there are two types of plant resin with the potential for fossilization. Terpenoids , produced by conifers and angiosperms , consist of ring structures formed of isoprene C 5 H 8 units. The extinct medullosans produced a third type of resin, which is often found as amber within their veins.
This class is by far the most abundant. It comprises labdatriene carboxylic acids such as communic or ozic acids.
enter Classes Ia and Ib utilize regular labdanoid diterpenes e. The aromatic and irritating fumes emitted by burning amber are mainly due to this acid. Baltic amber is distinguished by its yield of succinic acid, hence the name succinite. Succinite has a hardness between 2 and 3, which is rather greater than that of many other fossil resins.
Its specific gravity varies from 1. IR spectroscopy can detect the relative age of an amber sample. Succinic acid may not be an original component of amber, but rather a degradation product of abietic acid. Like class Ia ambers, these are based on communic acid; however, they lack succinic acid. This class is mainly based on enantio -labdatrienonic acids, such as ozic and zanzibaric acids. Dominican amber differentiates itself from Baltic amber by being mostly transparent and often containing a higher number of fossil inclusions. This has enabled the detailed reconstruction of the ecosystem of a long-vanished tropical forest.
It is not " succinite " but " retinite ". These ambers are formed from resins with a sesquiterpenoid base, such as cadinene. These ambers are polystyrenes. Class IV is something of a wastebasket; [ clarification needed ] its ambers are not polymerized, but mainly consist of cedrene -based sesquiterpenoids. Class V resins are considered to be produced by a pine or pine relative.
They comprise a mixture of diterpinoid resins and n -alkyl compounds. Their main variety is Highgate copalite.
