    This water-clear pill of Amber exhibits a golden-yellow color and contains a spider in time for Halloween along with an unidentified fly. The duo suspended together for all time are readily visible although small thanks to the clarity of the example. This smooth fossilized 'worry stone' beckons to be held and viewed.
