Insect Fossil in Amber (#B018)
from The STEMcell Science Shop
Age: 38–48 million years Era:Lutetian stage, Middle Eocene Location: Lithuania Amber Size: 10 x 6 x 2 mm
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.
