DescriptionAmber with Inclusions
This large specimen of Amber is just over 50 grams, but it is without doubt the inclusions that make this fine example something truly special. Both a large and a small Coleoptera beetle have found permanent residency in this golden-yellow polished piece, but it is without question the Araneida spider with long, segmented legs occupying the most pronounced corner of this prehistoric remnant that makes this Lot. The major players in this play are clearly visible from both sides of the clear and smooth Miocene fossil. Of course, it is still just the presence of the orb-weaver Araneid spider that is the star of this production.
Overall Measurements: 3.04 x 1.90 x 0.87 inches (7.72 x 4.85 x 2.22 cm)
