DescriptionAMBER-ENTRAPPED FLYING TERMITE
A fine example of fossilized tree resin, known as Amber, which as it seeped from the trunk of the Hymenaea tree, caught this small flying Termite unawares in its path, preserving it forever in a gorgeous, golden prison. The level of detail in this specimen is superb, right down to the delicate wings, and the clear yellow Amber is characterfully filled with large natural air bubbles around the insect, polished into a gleaming ovular cabochon, 1⅜ inches long.
