Fossil Ant (Formicidae) In Jewelry Quality Baltic Amber

This is a detailed 44 million year old fossil ant (family Formicidae) preserved in Baltic amber. The length of this ant is approximately 3.5mm. The ant is beautifully preserved and the amber is exceptionally clear of debris, making for a perfect jewelry specimen.

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.
