Still image from Amber Hunters

Amber--fossilized tree resin that often captured in its flow some form of life on earth millions of years ago. Prized for its rarity and beauty, amber is also sought by scientists for the potential discoveries of prehistoric life. Follow an amber hunter in a Dominican Republic marketplace and mine as he buys small quantities of this semiprecious jewel. Fellow scientists use modern technology to reveal the secrets of the encased fossil. Perhaps dinosaurs really can live again?
