    Description

    Amber with Inclusions
    Succinite
    Baltic Coast
    Russia
    1.57 x 1.28 x 0.61 inches (3.99 x 3.24 x 1.54 cm)


    Baltic Amber, also known as succinite, is not surprisingly from the Baltic region where the largest deposit of Amber in the world is found of which the vast majority comes from Russia. This robust specimen has a somewhat unique orangey-yellowish hue, at least for a Baltic example, but it is the "Long-Feeler Cricket" that has been entombed in the dollop of fossilized tree resin that makes this included piece so fabulous.

    [Scale: 1 inch, with mark at 1 cm]
