Fossil Spider Web With Insect Leg & Mites In Baltic Amber

This is a rarely-seen 44 million year old fossil spider web preserved in Baltic Amber. The piece of baltic amber measures 32 x 23mm with the spiderweb stretching across 22mm of it. There is also a tiny mite present in the amber and a leg of an unidentified insect.

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.
