AMBER - CONTAINING A FOSSIL INSECT

40 million years old


From the Baltic coast of Eastern Europe

Small pieces of polished amber, each containing a tiny fossil insect. Each piece is provided in a plastic display box with a descriptive label as shown.

Because the smallest insects were most frequently trapped by the sticky resin, almost all insects in amber are very small.  The insect in each piece is visible with the naked eye but a hand lens is recommended to see the insect clearly. Large insects in amber are rare.
Reasonably priced hand lenses can be purchased here.
 
Please note:  The photographs are typical examples of what we have.  You will receive the best example from our current stock in this price range.
