... is a type of potassic volcanic rock best known for sometimes containing diamonds. It is named after the town of Kimberley in South Africa, where the discovery of an 83.5-carat (16.7 g) diamond in 1871 spawned a diamond rush, eventually creating the Big Hole.. Kimberlite occurs in the Earths crust in vertical structures known as kimberlite pipes. Kimberlite pipes are the most important source of mined diamonds today. The consensus on kimberlites is that they are formed deep within the mantle. Formation occurs at depths between 150 and 450 kilometres (93 and 280 mi), from anomalously enriched exotic mantle compositions, and are erupted rapidly and violently, often with considerable carbon dioxide and other volatile components. It is this depth of melting and generation which makes kimberlites prone to hosting diamond xenocrysts.. Kimberlite has attracted more attention than its relative volume might suggest that it deserves. This is largely because it serves as a carrier of diamonds ...

Its a beaded necklace made of Amber, designed to be worn around a teething babys neck.. The benefits of the amber teething necklaces dont come from baby chewing on the beads but just from baby wearing the necklace.. But How?!. Amber is a gemstone, yellowish-orange in color and is made of resin from fossilized coniferous trees - trees so old they could make the talking ones in lord of the rings look young… seriously though, amber comes from extinct trees that existed up to 90 million years ago.. But, just like gold, not all amber is created equal.. There is amber and then theres Baltic amber and its kind of like comparing the Tesla Model S to the Model 3.. Baltic amber originates from the surrounding regions of the Baltic Sea. Its a unique type of amber because its composed of 8% succinic acid, also called "amber acid". FYI this isnt the type of acid that Steve Jobs used to rave about either {not even close}.. Amber acid has anti-inflammatory properties and acts as an analgesic {fancy ...
Amber has been the subject of scientific studies which clearly indicate therapeutic properties. Amber is the fossilised resin from prehistoric trees with some dating as far back as 50 million years ago. The resin would have been used by the tree itself as a natural antibiotic or for preservation. For centuries it has been worn as a natural remedy for pain relief. When amber is worn on the skin, heat releases minuscule amounts of healing oils which are absorbed into the bloodstream. Scientific findings show that amber is electromagnet, producing significant amounts of organic, purely natural energy. ...

Dr. David Blackburn, Florida Museum of Natural History, "100 million-year-old fossil frogs in amber". Frogs have been around for more than 200 million years, but glimpsing their early heyday is tough. Often small and lightly built, frogs dont tend to preserve well and are poorly-represented in the fossil record compared with many other types of animals. Now, a new study presents the oldest frogs preserved in amber. These fossils, from the same Burmese amber deposits that produced a feathered dinosaur tail a couple of years ago, also provide the earliest direct evidence of frogs in wet, tropical forests. While we often associate frogs with tropical forests, we havent known how old that ...
The Strepsiptera are one of the strangest insect groups, little known to most people, and hardly seen even by entomologists unless they make a special effort to study them. All are obligate endoparasites in other insects and, as so often in parasitic groups, there are many unique morphological and biological adaptations. Their relationship to other orders is still not clear;

Despite the large number of insect species, their fossils are found in only a few deposits scattered across the globe and through time. Their fossilisation has been facilitated by their external skeleton. One of the various forms of fossilisation, inclusion in amber, was popularised in a 1990s science-fiction film, Jurassic Park.

The cortices of pieces of Cretaceous amber around the world commonly are constituted by networks of filamentous structures. Based on their morphological characteristics, such structures have previously been classified in different microorganismal groups. Their correct interpretation, however, is of great importance to establish the conditions of the resins burial in the forest litter, and can provide important clues regarding the ecology and environmental conditions of Cretaceous resinous forests. Because these networks of filamentous structures present typical fungal morphological features we conducted a study in order to resolve their origin. The cortices of several pieces of Cretaceous amber from Spain were examined using light and scanning electron microscopy, energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy, and confocal laser scanning microscopy. This is the first time that Calcofluor white and Wheat germ agglutinin conjugated with fluorescein isothiocyanate have been employed as fungal markers in ...

About the copal, this is the biggest problem to get good substitute, because even we dont know what the original must be. The Zanzibar copal mentioned in Livache & McIntosh book, was taken out from Trachilobium Hornemannianum. I have looked at the internet and its in a same Hymenaea family. So it could not be very far from Manilla copal and there arent good alternative at the moment. I tried Mexican copal and other transparent resins from South America or Egypt and so on, but they dont dissolve in ethanol very well. Madagascar copal dissolves in Ethanol if it is left about 3 days in a warm room. The effect of fossilized resin and raw resin from live trees could make different quality varnish, especially the hardness.I always felt the surfaces of Best White Varnish of S&P (made with Manila or Kauri) are too soft to get good gloss even after a few weeks..

In our April 27 Facebook Live session, Co-director Jeremy McDermott spoke with Senior Editor Mike LaSusa about InSight Crimes research and reporting on the Dominican Republics growing role in the global drug trade.. The conversation opened with LaSusa discussing the recent arrest of several suspected Dominican gang members in New York City, which served as a reminder of the dominance Dominican gangs have asserted over the cocaine trade in the United States biggest city, as well as in several other cities on the East Coast.. McDermott spoke about his recent research trip to the Dominican Republic, where the head of the national anti-drug police told him that as much as 120 tons of cocaine - some 15 percent of annual global production - flows through the island nation each year, a large percentage of which is destined to Europe where Dominican crime groups also maintain a presence in several major cities.

Presented is the first absolute age for the basal Albian from the Schwicheldt Ton Member, Gault Formation, Vöhrum, Germany. A 206Pb/238U age of 113.1 ± 0.3 Ma is determined for chemically abraded zircon from a tuff horizon 65 cm above the Aptian/Albian boundary. The new U-Pb age, although within uncertainty of the GTS 2008 determination (112 ± 1 Ma), is nominally older. The younger GTS 2008 basal Albian age is obtained from cyclostratigraphy using an 40Ar-39Ar age from the base Cenomanian. The nominal difference between the GTS 2008 age and new basal Albian age is consistent with the documented ca. 0.65% bias between U-Pb and 40Ar/39Ar geochronology. The new 206Pb/238U age calls into question a recently published age for the basal Albian (106.9 ± 0.4 Ma) determined from K-Ar glauconite analysis, as well as the K-Ar age for the GL-O international standard.

July 19, 2017 - A 9-year-old boy walking through the New Mexico desert stumbled upon an extremely rare find-a million-year-old Stegomastodon fossil. While hiking with his family, the boy literally tripped over the fossil as it protruded from the ground. Stegomastodons were ancient tusked mammals, distant cousins to mammoths and modern elephants. They lived an estimated 1.2 million years ago. Only a couple hundred Stegomastodon fossils have been discovered in the world. The fossil was eventually excavated and brought to a museum.Click here to read Boy Found Million-Year-Old Fossil by Tripping Over It.

Daza 1 and Aaron M. Bauer 1 - 2 Abstract. A new species of Sphaerodactylus (Squamata: Gekkota: Sphaerodactylidae) is described from an amber inclusion from the late Early Miocene or early Middle Miocene (15 to 20 million years ago) of the Dominican Republic. Unlike earlier amber-embedded specimens assigned to this genus, the new specimen is largely skeletal, with some integument remaining. A combination of 258 (of 674) osteological and external characters could be scored for the new species in a cladistic analysis of 21 gekkotan species, including representatives of all sphaerodactylid genera. The most parsimonious trees obtained confirm the placement of the amber gecko within the genus Sphaerodactylus and a comparison with extant ...
