Detailed Fossil Fly (Diptera) with Eggs in Baltic Amber

This is a detailed 44 million year old fossil fly (order Diptera) preserved in Baltic amber. This specimen is unique in that the fly laid eggs after becoming trapped within the amber, resulting in exceptional preservation of the fly and eggs. The length of this fly is about 4mm.

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.
