Fossil Spider (Araneae) In Amber - Myanmar
Note: While the Baltic Amber we have sold comes with stunning macro photography in both physical and digital forms this is NOT available for this specimen. The photography of the baltic amber was done by our supplier and required hand polishing the amber surface very close to the inclusion, shooting up to a dozen photos and combing them using photo stacking software. This is not something we can do ourselves with this burmese amber.
Note #2: There is a lot of false information on the Internet that Amber is illegal to export from Myanmar (Burma). Under their laws fossils may not be exported from the country, but under Myanmar Mines Law amber (including amber with insect inclusions) is classified as a gemstone, and may be exported. Amber has been a large export from the region for centuries and it's mining and sale makes up a significant part of the local economy with an estimated 10 tons exported annually.
