Fossil Pseudoscorpion Exuviae Preserved In Baltic Amber

This is a small, 44 million year old fossil Pseudoscorpion exuviae preserved in Baltic Amber. It is about 2mm wide. A pseudoscorpion, also known as a false scorpion or book scorpion, is an arachnid belonging to the order Pseudoscorpiones. They are small arachnids with a flat, pear-shaped body and pincers that resemble those of scorpions. Exuviae are the remains of an exoskeleton following the molting of insects, crustaceans and arachnids.

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.
