Kaurilite from the kauri tree
Kaurilite is fossilized or semi-fossilized resin of an ancient Kauri tree in New Zealand.
Amber from New Zealand
Kaurilite looks a lot like amber, and has only recently been discovered. The Kauri tree is one of the oldest species on earth and has been around for 150 million years. The kauri tree can reach a height of 45 meters and there are trees known that are 2000 years old. Recently Kaurilite has been found in excavations. The exact age of the pieces of (semi)fossilized resin has not been determined yet, but its for sure very interesting!
