Mexican Amber, also known as Chiapas Amber is an incredible form of amber that is found exclusively in Mexico. During the Early Miocene and Middle Miocene of the Cenozoic Era in southwestern North America, Amber was created which contains a variety of taxa including insects, plant fragments and epiphyllous fungi. This Amber is unique from others as it is also UV reactive due to its high fluorescence properties. It contains many insect inclusions which are typically very small to the naked eye and can only be seen with proper magnification. Mexican Amber stands out for its rarity for trapping larger insects such as those powerful enough to struggle free, making it even more special than other Amber finds.
