Detailed Fossil Termite (Isoptera) & Flies (Diptera) In Baltic Amber

This is a amazingly detailed, 44 million year old fossil termite (order Isoptera) preserved in Baltic Amber. It's about 9mm long and is associated with two fossil flies (order Diptera).

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, 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.
