Fossil Mammalian Hair, Wasp & Fly Preserved in Baltic Amber - Rare!

These are 44 million year old mammalian hair strands preserved in Baltic Amber. There is also a beautifully detailed fossil wasp (order Hymenoptera) and fly (order Diptera) preserved in association with the hair.

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.
