I was stationed in Hawaii, (Kaneohe Bay Marine Corps Air Station on Oahu), in 1973. I found some amber-like stuff oozing from a palm tree. There were no insects in it, and it was of the consistency of chewed gum. I put a bit, the size of a marble into a film canister. Many years later, I came upon that film canister, and found the resin to be harder than wood. On a fling, a friend of ours took it to the university where he works, and had it tested. The report came back that it was spruce amber, and over 150,000 years old. I never did tell them, "The rest of the story."
