Detailed Fossil Winged Termite and Ant in Baltic Amber

 
 
This is an amazingly detailed, large 44 million year old fossil winged termite (order Isoptera) and an ant (family Formicidae) preserved in Baltic Amber. The termite is about 11mm wide.

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.
