Detailed Fossil Fly (Dolichopodidae) & Thuja Twig In Baltic Amber

 
 
This is an amazingly detailed 44 million year old fossil fly (order Diptera, family Dolichopodidae) and a thuja twig (order Pinales) preserved in Baltic amber. The length of the twig is about 10mm.

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.
