Fossilized Insect in Amber

$25.00

An insect trapped in amber around 40 million years ago. This listing is for a random piece of amber containing at least one insect fossil. Amber pieces range from a few millimeters to a centimeter.

Why a random selection? These specimens are from the same batch as the individual amber listings. However, we haven't had time to photograph these individually under the microscope and determine their grade. It's a surprise!

The images on this page are representative of the specimen you will receive. You may not receive these exact items. Close-up images were taken through a microscope. 

Includes protective display container. This item ships free & carbon neutral.

Amber is a unique preservational mode , preserving otherwise unfossilizable parts of organisms; as such it is helpful in the reconstruction of ecosystems as well as organisms; the chemical composition of the resin, however, is of limited utility in reconstructing the phylogenetic affinity of the resin producer.

Baltic amber, also called succinite, is a yellowish fossilized tree resin created by forests in the Baltic region of Europe from about 37–48 million years ago. Amber starts as a soft resin when it is secreted from trees, so animals and plant matter can be caught and engulfed in it before it solidifies. Amber is unique in its ability to dehydrate and preserve organisms with impeccable detail. This sample of Baltic amber contains an insect inclusion from the Eocene epoch. Amber provides our most thorough insect fossil record.

Fossilized insect in amber

Great product. Arrived well packaged in individual box with item description card. I just wish it was a little bit bigger. Still, this was a hard to find item from my son’s wish list and the Stemcell Science Shop definitely delivered!
