The green and blue sky colour observed in some amber from the Dominican Republic is actually fluorescence stimulated by ultraviolet (UV) light. A previous study described the colour as iridescence over a yellow background, but it is in fact surface fluorescence. Since this amber can be considered a long-wavelength filter with a half-pass of wavelengths at about 530 nm in its spectral transmittance, it does not transmit either UV or short-wave visible light. As this material completely absorbs light in the UV range and strongly absorbs light in the short-wave visible range, the stimulate green and blue colour is confined exclusively to the surface. The amber from this study also showed the Usambara effect, the phenomenon in which colour varies with the path length of light through a sample. The phenomenon by which body colour varies according to a gemstone’s thickness is called the Usambara effect. Liu et al.
