Amber is not normally associated with Sumatra, Indonesia but in recent years a unique variety of amber has been found there. The normally cognac tones of amber can be found as well as an array of white, red, olive and most importantly blue, violet hues. Most Sumatra amber displays strong, natural fluorescence under UV light. In natural sunlight the blue hues of this Sumatra Amber are particularly spectacular as they reflect intense saturations of colour, unlike other amber.  Sumatra amber jewellery is rare and each piece is unique.
