Special notes: This insect shows clear signs of struggle to escape the amber. Bubbles, waves, and maybe even a damaged wing from fighting against the sap that was engulfing it. Now it is captured for a later species, us, to see it as it was in its final Pompeii-esque moment.
This listing is for the exact fossil imaged. Close-up images taken up to 60x magnification.
Includes display container. This item ships free & carbon neutral.
Note: Due to high demand, the fossil market is flooded with fake amber, often just plastic with embedded insects. We only sell authentic amber with actual fossils.
