Detailed Fossil Cobweb Spider (Theridiidae) In Baltic Amber

This is a nicely detailed fossil cobweb spider (order Araneae - family Theridiidae) preserved in Baltic amber. This inclusion measures about 3mm wide including appendages in a 23 x 17 x 6mm piece of amber.

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, which is often plastics with insects embedded in it. The insect inclusions in amber are almost always tiny. Larger insects are able to struggle free and are not preserved. If you see something that looks too good to be true, it often is. Make sure to buy from a reputable dealer.
