Though there is some faceted material in the market now from Burma, this is an old collection stone cut from Mexican Amber.  The color is a gorgeous deep honey orange - remember that Amber is extremely light, so this stone is much larger than you might expect from its actual 25 carat weight.  Custom US cutting and a fine polish - like most Amber this one is highly fluorescent to UV lighting, just have a look at the last photo.  With strong oblique lighting it is even possible to see the flow structure of the Amber across the surface of the table - simply a perfect piece of this species!
