Detailed Fossil Predatory Mite (Parasitidae) In Baltic Amber

This 44 million year old piece of baltic amber contains a beautifully detailed 1.5mm long predatory mite (family Parasitidae). There are two smaller mites within the amber as well (one in background of photo).

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