Fossil Ant, Caddisfly Larva, Fly and Mite in Baltic Amber

 
 
 
This is a detailed, 44 million year old fossil ant (family Formicidae), a caddisfly larva (order Trichoptera), a fly (order Diptera) and a mite (subclass Acari) preserved in Baltic 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, 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.
