Detailed Fossil Ant, Flies, Spider, and Larva in Baltic Amber

This is a detailed, 44 million year old piece of polished Baltic amber that contains a well preserved fossil ant (family Formicidae), several flies (order Diptera), a spider (order Araneae), and a larva. The larva was not been captured in one of the images. The ant is about 4mm wide.

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 high resolution digital copies.

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.
