DescriptionACACIA FROND CAPTURED IN AMBER
La Bucara Mine, la Cordillera Septentrional, Dominican Republic
A sizable section of an Acacia frond has been captured for eternity in this piece of Dominican Amber and is accompanied by a large winged male ant that appears to be strolling on the frond itself. Looking like its modern day cousin, the frond's individual leaves are well detailed. The Amber itself measures 1 x 7/8 x 3/8 inch thick and has been authenticated by famed Amber expert Dr. David Grimaldi of the American Museum of Natural History. From a private Eastern collection, it is in fine condition.
Estimate: $750 - $1,000.
