Detailed Fossil Caddisfly & Wasp In Baltic Amber - Blue Eyes!

 
 
 
 
 
This is a nicely detailed 44 million year old fossil caddisfly (order Trichoptera) with blue eyes and a wasp (order Hymenoptera), preserved in Baltic amber. The length of the caddisfly is about 5.5mm. There is also a partial ant within the amber.

As a reminder, most inclusions in Baltic amber are extremely small so magnification will be needed to make out much detail. A physical photo of the specimen is included with your order 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.
