Fossil Pseudoscorpion (Arachnid) Preserved In Baltic Amber

This is a small, 44 million year old fossil Pseudoscorpion preserved in Baltic Amber. It is about 3mm wide. A pseudoscorpion, also known as a false scorpion or book scorpion, is an arachnid belonging to the order Pseudoscorpiones. They are small arachnids with a flat, pear-shaped body and pincers that resemble those of scorpions.

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.
