Fossil Spider Exuvia (Araneae) and Coprolites in Baltic Amber

This is a beautifully detailed, 44 million year old fossil spider exuvia (order Araneae) and coprolites (fossil poop), preserved in Baltic amber. The fossil spider exuvia itself is about 3mm wide. 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.
