Detailed 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. There is a second bug associated with the caddisfly, however it's left unidentified.

This amber specimen has also been drilled to allow for jewelry application.

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.
