This a beautiful piece of amber with a numerous (I've counted 15!!) Winged Insects from the late Cretaceous of Myanmar! The insects are all in fantastic condition with articulated segments and fine detail! The amber is dirty citrine with a band of red running through the middle with great clarity! It comes in a floating frame with a stand, a blown up picture of the piece taken with a microscope, and a label with details about the piece for easy transport and a beautiful display! The amber's dimensions measure 25.2 x 16.47 x 4.62 millimeters and weighs about .927 grams!

Amber is petrified tree resin (not sap, resin is much thicker). It forms when trees secrete resin, and the resin is quickly washed away by water and deposited in a lake where it is covered by sediment (if the resin isn’t washed away it decomposes or gets eaten). Along the way, small particles of dust, bits of plant material, and even small animals like insects and lizards can become trapped in the resin which hardens and preserves whatever is trapped within (aka inclusions). Myanmar amber, also known as Burmite, is world renowned gem quality amber known for excellent inclusions of insects, plants, and even small vertebrates! The preservation in amber can be so good it inspired a major portion of Jurassic Park, where blood sucking insects trapped in amber provided the DNA needed to clone dinosaurs! While the science of cloning dinosaurs from amber is, for better or worse, not a reality the pristine fossils of small animals that are rarely fossilized in any other way is very real! Makes for a terrific addition to any fossil collection or even a gem for high end jewelry!

Fake Amber is a plague on the fossil market, this piece has been tested to guarantee authenticity!
