    Amber with Inclusions
    Hymenaea protera
    Dominican Republic

    This significant piece of Amber features a dozen Isoptera winged termites and a Hymenoptera winged ant. The specimen has a unique arch shape with essentially two polished faces and edges of fractured Amber featuring conchoidal-like contacts. The water clear material allows for the highest detail of the wings to be seen with the naked eye. At just over 45 grams, this is not a dense piece but is still rather large. The certificate which accompanies this Lot confirms its authenticity and details of its inclusions.
    Overall Measurements: 3.33 x 1.57 x 0.89 inches (8.46 x 4.00 x 2.27 cm)

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
