Amber Miners

In Mexico's southern Chiapas mountains, men, women and children work in primitive conditions to mine amber from the rock. Working by candlelight deep in the mountainsides with none of the security features found in modern mines, these Mexicans pry the honey-colored fossil from the hill. NPR's Gerry Hadden reports from Simojovel , Mexico.
