Fossil Ant (Formicidae) In Baltic Amber

 
 
 
This is an amazingly detailed, 44 million year old fossil ant (Family Formicidae) preserved in Baltic Amber. The ant is about 1.5mm in length and the amber is particularly clear and free of other inclusions like fungus and plant fragments.

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.
