DescriptionAmber with Inclusions
This polished oval Amber is rounded on the top and somewhat flat on the bottom. The sizable piece has a rich golden-yellow coloration, but it is without question the cockroach and pair of spiders preserved in the ancient diorama which really make this piece so special. Of course, there are numerous inclusions in this fantastic example including several unidentified flies and a leafhopper. The dense specimen is full of inclusions for its size and really needs to be viewed under a loupe or microscope to see everything inside. At 42.5 grams, this is still sizable Amber and, of course, is a fossil dating back 15 to 25 million years ago!
