Mosquito in Amber

Amber is fossilized tree resin (sap) that has been preserved over millions of years. Sometimes, insects and other objects get trapped in the amber and are preserved along with it.

In Jurassicraft, there are two varieties of amber: The Mosquito in Amber (yields DNA from land animals), and the Aphid in Amber (yields DNA from Plants and Trees). When amber ore is mined, there's a 50/50 chance of it yielding either variant.

Place amber into a DNA Extractor along with a Storage Disc to obtain DNA (from the animal or plant the encased insect parasitized before it died).
