Blue Eyed Fossil Caddisfly (Trichopterae) In Baltic Amber

This is a 44 million year old fossil caddisfly (order Trichopterae) preserved in Baltic Amber. This 8mm long fly can be seen in very nice detail under microscope. An eye catching characteristic of this fly is the blue colored preservation of the fly's eyes, best viewed 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.
