1.9" Rough Baltic Amber - Kaliningrad, Russia

This is a 1.9" wide, rough piece of Baltic amber collected from Kaliningrad, Russia. The amber itself is orange-yellow in color and makes for excellent polishing material. Its very possible that fossil insects can be found within this amber.

Amber is fossilized tree resin which frequently contains inclusions such as plant matter, fungi, and insects. This amber comes from Russia and is believed to have formed during the middle Eocene (~44 million years ago or older) Epoch.
Please note, the market is flooded with fake amber, often plastic with insects embedded in them. In fact the majority of amber I see sold on the internet is not real. If you see something that looks too good to be true, often it is. Only buy amber from reputable dealers.
