Description

ONE OF A KIND

This large Mexican amber specimen has been carved by hand into a small human skull measuring 2.75” tall, 2.25” wide & 3” deep.

Mexican amber, also known as Chiapas Amber, was created during the late Oligocene and Early Miocene epochs (around 23 million years ago) of the Cenozoic Era in southwestern North America. The amber was produced by either the two extinct leguminous trees Hymenaea mexicana or Hymenaea allendis, both of which were initially described from fossil flowers included in Mexican amber.
