Detailed Fossil Marsh Beetle and Two Ants in Baltic Amber

This is a beautifully detailed, 44 million year old fossil marsh beetle (order Coleoptera - family Scirtidae) and two ants (order Hymenoptera - family Formicidae) preserved in Baltic amber. This beetle is about 3.5mm wide in a 25 x 18 x 7.5mm 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.
