Fossil Ant (Formicidae) & Mites In Baltic Amber

This is an amazingly detailed, 44 million year old fossil ant (Family Formicidae) preserved in Baltic Amber. The ant is about 4mm in length and there are also several very small mites present.

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.
