DescriptionSUPERB INSECTS IN RARE CRYSTAL-CLEAR GREEN AMBER
This incredible nugget boasts almost complete crystal clarity, lovely banded orange-yellow shades of golden amber, finished off with a most beautiful pale green tint. Green is one of the rarest variations in amber, and this would be a beautiful and desirable nugget under any circumstances, but to make it all the more special it contains not only numerous small flies and midges, but also the perfectly preserved body of a rare treehopper, remarkably large at ½ inch long. Inclusions in green amber are extremely hard to find, and when they do occur they almost always have a distorted "burnt" appearance; in this instance, however, the insects are preserved perfectly, exactly as in life, making this beautiful piece a museum-grade specimen of remarkable size, 2 1/16 x 1 x 9/16 x 9/16 inches.
