It's really neat to see something other than an insect in amber. That's really an amazing and rare find.
If I can't see it with my microscope, it ain't worth looking at. :D

A really nice find :D I live in a place near one of the world's biggest amber fields in the world but even here such things are very rare sight.

Then I think you will appreciate the beauty of this bangle, which I bought for my wife about 20 years ago.

.... each piece is like a segment of an orange.

Have you tried photographing any polished sections of your local material ?

A nice selection of colours you got in there :D I never tried to watch amber under the microscope, to be honest, mainly because I still don't have a grinding/polishing machine in my workshop and most of the available pieces of material are not
polished flat.
