Description
Beautiful piece of Baltic amber with an inclusion of a fossil fly. This amber comes from the famous deposits that are under the Baltic sea, in the coasts of Poland. Its age dates from the Eocene, and apart from being widely used in jewelry, it usually has a large amount of fossil inclusions inside. Many species of insects have been described thanks to their preservation within this precious resin of fossil tree.

In this particular piece, we can observe a fly (Diptera sp - Dolichopodidae). The anatomical details of the insect are staggering. Under binocular loupes you can even see the eyes and wing details. Undoubtedly, these types of fossils are astounding.

There are large quantities of fake amber on the market, manufactured through synthetic resins, and introducing the insects inside. However, this is completely original and authentic. A time bubble that looks just like it was almost 50 Million years ago.

Amber piece size: 0.70 Inch = 17.7 mm
Size of insect: 0.13 Inch = 3.4 mm
