Fossil Spider, Springtail, Two Mites and a Crane Fly in Baltic Amber

 
 
These are nicely detailed 44 million year old insects/arachnids, including a fossil spider (order Araneae), a springtail (subclass Collembola), two mites (subclass Acari) and a crane fly (family Tipulidae), preserved in Baltic amber. The spider is about 1.5mm long.

As a reminder, most inclusions in Baltic amber are extremely small so magnification will be needed to make out much detail. A physical photo of the specimen is included with your order 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.
