Detailed Fossil Fly (Diptera) & Thuja Twig in Baltic Amber

 
 
This is an amazingly detailed 24 million year old specimen containing a fossil flu (order Diptera) and a Thuja twig preserved in Baltic amber. The length of the twig is about 9mm.

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.
