Our Price: £0.00

SOLD

Eocene Period c.55-45 Million years old. A nice piece of Baltic Amber (Fossilised Tree Resin) containing a beautifully preserved Moth. This piece of genuine Baltic Amber was found on the Baltic shores in Poland and has been professionally polished to reveal a tiny but perfectly preserved insect which became trapped in the sticky resin as it trickled down a tree in a prehistoric forest. Amber really is a time capsule, as creatures and insects trapped within it do not decay and are perfectly preserved for all eternity; this gives us a wonderful opporunity to gaze upon an actual creature that lived some 40-50 million years ago. Amber approx 34mm long with insects c.3-4mm in length. Supplied in small display box with plastic magnifier lens in the lid plus close up photos of the preserved insect.
