Mating Fossil Flies, Mite, Springtail and Beetle in Baltic Amber

These are nicely detailed 44 million year old mating fossil flies (order Diptera), a mite (Subclass Acari), a springtail (order Collembola) and a beetle (order Coleoptera) preserved in Baltic amber. There is a large partial ant (family Formicidae) within this amber as well.

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.
