Baltic amber Morphology

Amber has very different shapes: small droplets, similar to fresh honey drops, or large pieces, like a human brain, a skull or an egg.

Observing natural pieces of amber we understand the way resin was dripping, dropping or gliding. Some pieces of amber have a regular shape of a drop, others hardened into icicles, much of resin moved down a trunk, and hardened into lumps or got collected under a bark or just in a trunk.

The form and the structure of amber was mainly determined by the formation of resin tank and change of the nature of the place. There are two morphologic species of amber: interior and exterior amber. Interior amber was formed from initial resin in various parts of bark and wood. Exterior amber was formed by outpoured resin along the surface. Interior amber morphological variants are wooden lenses, under-bark lenses and bark amber. Exterior amber - amber icicles, amber drops and trunk amber.

Good-looking morphologic species of amber are rare. Only fragments of them broken and rubbed are usually found. Knowing their own features it is easy to define the species.

Interior amber:

Wooden lenses are transparent because their resins were pressed tightly and isolated from the exterior impact.

Under-bark lenses were formed when resins flowed under a bark, which torn off a wood. Under-bark cavity formed their contours. The imprints of cambium fibrous tissue are always found on the surface of under-bark lenses.

Bark amber was formed in a thick amberwood bark when its laminas moved aside. The bark amber lenses have a very specific irregular shape with cut brims, which were formed by the contours of bark laminas that moved apart. The imprints in both sides are characteristic to them: emerged-in one side, sunken in the same shape-in another side.

Exterior amber:

Amber icicles are divided into micro-and macro-icicles. Micro-icicles are "amber in amber"-first outpoured dozes of resin preserved in macro-icicles – the rudiments of massive icicles. Macro-icicles were formed when resin flowed uniformly from a wounded piece of a tree. Macro-icicles are the main receptacle of vegetable and animal remains; more than 95% of all inclusions are found in macro-icicles. Most icicles have clear striking signs, which mean they were hanging on thin branches (2-8cm in diameter).

Amber drops are the overdose of resin that broke away from the streams, which used to flow through icicles and trunk. They can be of different size; various conservation and deformed structure. Drops flattened when falling are most frequently found (about 30 %). Drops of regular shape are very rare, they might have formed when resin flowed from slits of wood or when they fell into the water.

Trunk amber is morphologic amber species, which is the most plentiful and various. Resin that outpoured on the surface of a trunk made big accumulations that flowed down slowly. Under the heat of the sun they have melted and hardened for many times. Some volatile components emitted because of heat, but not all gases could volatilize from marshy resins mass. Different colours mixed when resins were flowing down a trunk, that is why superficial amber obtained a texture of various colours. The biggest pieces of amber that were found are trunk amber (weigh several kilograms).

Hello there! Do you use Twitter? I'd like to follow you if that would be okay. I'm undoubtedly enjoying your blog and look forward to new posts. I'm with you on that one. I was wondering about the same thing too. Really, why does anyone wants to stay in the same resort over and over okay, I will not even ask why they want to go to the destination repeatedly. We used to lived in Florida, and I have return twice to the Orlando area (because I have friends living in that area), but each time, I stayed at different resorts. My husband just plain refuse to go, because as he puts it "I used to live there; we moved, so why vacation there?" My husband loved this. We haven't tried in water, yet, but on land it is great!<br /><br />Rating: 5 / 5 My wife and I bought in 2005, one unit, and we use it every year and love staying at the Grandview, we also use our bonus weeks, have stayed in some really cool places. Its paid off now were happy with it and the grandkids like all the swimming pools. serve you to transport large enough to accommodate the product of any kind, to all places by air, sea, land.

Start lifting weights to gain high quality lean muscle mass. One must also remember that supplements are there to supplement instead of replacing your intake of food.

Online loans . How many copies of Broke . And how much more will break . A small article on -line credit
проведение кредита в режиме онлайн очень складно в том случае, если у Вас нет времени на походы по банкам. Конечно же, не все банки предлагают такую услугу, но все же на сайтах ведущих банков Вы выищет подходящую Вам страницу.

Сразу уточним, что через интернет можно оформить покупательский кредит. На выдачу же более знатных займов в режиме онлайн можно получить только согласие кредитного комитета, после чего Вам никак не удастся уклонится посещения банка, так как ему необходимо будет исправно протестировать Вашу состоятельность. Впрочем, в банк пристанет идти даже и по поводу потребительского кредита, так как денежки на дом никто не доставляет.

Через интернет банки дают оформить заявку на приобретение кредита в системе онлайн. Однако, пока что именно это давать кличку онлайн-кредитованием. Для этого, зайдя на сайт нужно Вам банка и найдя раздел «онлайн-сервис» или «онлайн-заявка», необходимо заполнить анкету. Если банк согласен выдать заемщику кредит, то его извещают об этом по телефону, после чего просят прийти в обозримое отдел банка, где и берется решительное решение о выдаче денег. просто, такое решение принимается после проверки всех необходимых паспортов. Таким образом, онлайн-кредитование помогает выгадать. ant. потратить время на заполнение заказы на приобретение кредита. В остальном вся процедура является стандартной.

Сейчас онлайн-кредиты не употребляются особенной известностью, так как не имеют совершенно никаких преимуществ перед типичными. Со слов банков, работа через интернет способствует снижение себестоимости операций, поэтому бывает замечен вероятность порекомендовать сетевым посетителям более привлекательные условия кредитования. Возможно, со временем это действительно осуществиться. D0%B2%D0%BA%D0%B0-%D0%BD%D0%B0-%D0%BA%D1%80%D0%B5%D0%B4%D0%B8%D1%82/
