Fossil Bush Cricket & Fly In Baltic Amber - Rare!

This is a small but detailed, 44 million year old fossil cricket (order Orthoptera, family Tettigoniidae) and fly (order Diptera) preserved in Baltic Amber. The cricket itself is about 5mm long. Unfortunately, the 7mm long fly didn't receive microscopic photography.

As a reminder, most inclusions in baltic amber are extremely small so magnification will be needed to make out much detail. Included with your order is a physical photo of the specimen, and we will also email you a high resolution digital copy.

Please note, the market is flooded with fake amber, often plastic with insects embedded in them. In fact the majority of amber I see sold on the internet is not real. If you see something that looks too good to be true, often it is. Only buy amber from reputable dealers.
