Item Description

Dominican Amber is really popular with collectors because it is some of the best quality material in the world and many of pieces feature superb insect "fossils" frozen within. This is a wonderful miniature sized piece of this well-known material featuring handful of insect inclusions (possibly mosquitos, gnats or ants) that are clearly visible through the transparent Amber host material. This kind of Amber was made famous in films like Jurassic Park, and whether you consider this to be a fossil or a mineral specimen, you can't deny that it's just plain cool. Often we only seen a single insect inclusion in these pieces, so to have multiple insects like this is a real treat. It's not easy to find pieces like this on the market, and we were fortunate to get our hands on this one because a good friend had a small parcel stashed from years ago that we picked up a few months back.
