Amber with Insects-Large Spider
Age: Paleocene (59 MYA)
This amber is from a source located south of the Cerrejon Coal mines in Colombia. This amber is much harder than the copal for which Colombia is known. This piece measures 3 1/16" at the longest by 1 3/4" and averages 1/4" to 3/8" thick. This is the nicest spider I have been able to obtain recently and makes a great display as it is in nice clear amber. Other insects include termites, a beetle, and another insect with the long front legs I'm not sure about. See pictures for details and email with any questions. I will include a black floating frame with this piece for displaying. Piece has been tumbled and polished.
