This a GORGEOUS piece of amber with not one, but TWO HUGE COCKROACHES from the late Cretaceous of Myanmar! The Roaches show great to fantastic preservation, complete and fully articulated segments, antennae, and limbs with terrific detail! The amber is beautiful dirty citrine with great clarity! The amber's dimensions measure 20.87 x 14.06 x 5.6 millimeters and weighs 1.053 grams! The Roaches are both about 12 mm which is huge for an insect in burmite which are normally 1-2 mm! It comes in a floating frame with a stand, blown up pictures of the inclusions, and detailed information for easy transport and a beautiful display!

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!
