Fossil Thuja Twig (Pinales) & Mite (Arachnida) In Baltic Amber

This is a beautifully detailed, 44 million year old fossil Thuja tree twig (order Pinales) and a mite (class Arachnida) preserved in Baltic amber. The Thuja twig is about 7.5mm long. Supposedly there are pincers of a pseudoscorpion within this amber, however they're not included within the photo.

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.
