I believe the results of both C14 tests I had done on BuckAmber are correct. But what confuses me, is the obvious ancient pollen, plant and spore inclusions being so simple, huge, and different from modern ones. Is it possible to stop the C14 process by burying the subject with many tons of clay? I see them as being tests by plants trying to propagate their species and possibly being some of the first try at flowering plants (due to all the colors of BuckAmber). I also think they maybe one of the reasons some plants went extinct. It seems to me, some plants at this time, were putting their pollen and spores in these seeds figuring them to get out and spread their species. I think they didn't realize that the fluid inside the seed would dry when it hit the air, after loosing it's shell, not letting them out. Some plants tried a different way with wind blown pollen. I do have specimens of Buckamber with pollen stuck on the outside. These are plants that didn't go extinct. Scientists are wondering why some plants went extinct, and others survived. Maybe this is part of the answer. I see BuckAmber, as at least 100 million years old, and maybe 150 million years old, due to ancient ground under Long Island. In addition,  the spores and pollen inclusions look the same as pictures of ancient ones in books. Only these are perfect as the plant just made them. I got Dr. Brenner's book from Islip Public Library, and some pollen and spores match exactly to what's in his book. 

     The most wonderful thing I ever did, (of course second to marrying my honey Marge and having five wonderful kids) was finding and investigating BuckAmber. It never ceases to amaze me. I never found a BuckAmber I didn't like.
