AmberAmber with Inclusions
This incredible "bar of soap" of fossilized tree resin known as Amber has an amazing collection of insects preserved within its clear golden borders. Over 15 Hymenoptera winged ants, and about three to four Isoptera winged termites, number among the 18 insects in this prehistoric world. The delicate and detailed wings are clearly visible on most of the creatures in this compelling example. This is a big and beautiful piece of Amber, with numerous superb insect inclusions. This Amber specimen comes with a certificate attesting to its authenticity and contents. At over 95 grams, this specimen is large and rather heavy for an Amber.
Overall Measurements: 3.74 x 2.05 x 1.26 inches (9.50 x 5.20 x 3.20 cm)
