Yantarny Kalingrad, Russia
These three nuggets of fine Baltic Amber display the rare occurrence of prehistoric life preserved to perfection, in a state of suspended animation in fossilized tree resin. Although Amber is relatively abundant along the "Amber Coast" of northern Russia, it remains rare to find specimens of such clarity, containing the unfortunate victims of 50 million year old tree resin entrapment. Each of these insects is visible in every detail, right down to the veins of their diaphanous wings: one small ⅜-inch wide nugget of a lovely warm orange-gold color contains a single specimen; a somewhat larger piece, just under ¾ inches wide, contains another; and the third contains three small insects, trapped in lovely clear golden prison, 1¼ inches wide.
