Detailed Fossil Flies In Baltic Amber - Excellent Eye Facets!

These are two detailed, 44 million year fossil flies (order Diptera), preserved in baltic amber. Using the photo as reference, the large fly on the left is of the family Chironomidae, while the fly on the right is of the long legged family Dolichopodidae. The largest fly is about 2mm wide.

As a reminder, most inclusions in baltic amber are extremely small so magnification will be needed to make out much detail. Included with your order is a physical photo of the specimen, and we will also email you a high resolution digital copy.

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.
