In the most important city of the North Coast, Puerto Plata, you'll find a museum that will explain everything about that semi precious stone called Amber. Most of the jewellries of the country will offer you those stones extracted in a particular region in which you will see fossilize insects. There his another unique precious stone in DR which is mostly like the turquoise and is called Larimar.
The museum offers you the opportunity to see unique examples of Ambar.
