Amber with Insects-Large Spider

  • $450.00

Age:  Paleocene (59 MYA)

Location:  Colombia

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.
