Fossil Spider Web With Insect Leg & Mites In Baltic Amber

 
 
This is a rarely-seen 44 million year old fossil spider web preserved in Baltic Amber. The piece of baltic amber measures 32 x 23mm with the spiderweb stretching across 22mm of it. There is also a tiny mite present in the amber and a leg of an unidentified insect.

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.
