Fossil Aphids, Midges, Wasp, Gnat, Beetle & Spider Exuvia in Amber

This 44 million year old piece of Baltic amber is packed with a wide variety of insect fossils including two winged aphids (order Hemiptera - superfamily Aphidoidea), a gall midge (family Cecidomyiidae), a fungus gnat (family Mycetophilidae), a wasp (suborder Apocrita), a marsh beetle (family Scirtidae), a true midge (family Chironomidae), a spider exuvia (order Araneae), and more partial insects.

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, which is often plastics with insects embedded in it. The insect inclusions in amber are almost always tiny. Larger insects are able to struggle free and are not preserved. If you see something that looks too good to be true, it often is. Make sure to buy from a reputable dealer.
