Fossil Flies (Diptera) and a Cockroach (Blattodea) In Baltic Amber

 
 
These are four beautifully detailed 44 million year old fossil flies (order Diptera) and a cockroach (order Blattodea) preserved in Baltic amber. The length of the Cockroach is about 5mm.

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.
