Detailed Fossil Ants (Formicidae) & Flies (Diptera) In Baltic Amber

 
 
 
These are two amazingly detailed, 44 million year old fossil ants (Family Formicidae) and two fossil flies (order Diptera) preserved in Baltic Amber. One of the ants and one of the flies are intertwined together, in fighting position.

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.
