Fossil Caddisfly, Spiders and a Fly in Baltic Amber

 
 
This is a 44 million year old piece of Baltic Amber that contains a caddisfly (order Trichoptera), two spiders (order Aranea) and a small fly (order Diptera). The caddisfly is about 2mm long and can be seen in very nice detail under microscope.

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.
