Detailed Fossil Spider (Aranea) With Fungi In Baltic Amber

This is a 44 million year old fossil spider (order Aranea) that's covered in a fibrous fungi, preserved in Baltic amber. The spider itself is about 1mm wide and is best viewed under magnification. The amber is virtually free from debris, however the spider is unfortunately too small to observe on most forms of jewelry (without magnification).

As a reminder, most inclusions in Baltic amber are extremely small so magnification will be needed to make out much detail. A physical photo of the specimen is included with your order 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.
