Amber is fossilized tree sap, also known as resin, which has undergone molecular polymerization over 30-90 million years. These beautiful amber samples, ranging from 1.5-2+ cm, each have at least one small insect trapped inside. Samples originate from Russia and the Dominican Republic. Each sample comes in a clear plastic case with a magnifying lens in the lid to allow for excellent viewing of the organism inside the amber. The specimen can be removed for examination under a microscope. Cases measure 2.5 cm square by 2.3 cm high. (1" x 1" x 0.875").

Owner Response:Hi Karen,
If you have a piece of amber with an insect that is too small to see, please return it for another piece or a full refund. We guarantee that there is an insect in each piece, but once in a while they may be smaller than we prefer. Someone from customer service will be in touch with you.
