Detailed Fossil Plant Leaf (Gymnosperm) In Baltic Amber

This is an exquisitely detailed, 44 million year old fossil Gymnosperm leaf preserved in Baltic amber. The plant leaf is about 8mm long. It's associated with a 4mm long fly (order Diptera), however there is no photo accompanied with the fly.

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.
