Six Fossil Flies (One With Eggs) In Baltic Amber

 
 
 
 
 
These are six beautifully detailed 44 million year old fossil flies (order Diptera) preserved in Baltic amber. One of the flies laid eggs within the amber. There is an additional large flying insect within the amber, however it isn't photographed or identified.

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.
