This is a fossil "March Fly", Plecia pealei from the Eocene aged Green River Formation in Utah. It's .4" long and shows quite a bit of detail under magnification. The body along with two wings and a few legs are easily visible.
Beware: I've seen many of these flies for sale of fossil shows that are more or less just painted onto the rock and don't have any visible detail to their bodies.
