Item Description

What a fine quality and eye-catching piece of this classic material. Specimens of Amber (especially those with insect inclusions) have been popular for the better part of 30 years thanks to the Jurassic Park film franchise. This miniature sized specimen is from the Dominican Republic and features many very well-preserved insects (possibly a species of beetle) completely frozen inside. This material is always popular on the market (and becoming more difficult to find lately), and even though its more of a fossil than a mineral, it's still a really cool display piece of this well known material. It's rare to find a piece with MULTIPLE insects inside like this. It's a great specimen, best viewed under the microscope, and I'm sure I didn't capture everything in there.
