Amber with Insects- Spider #5

  • $280.00

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 1 1/2" at the longest by 1 1/2" at the widest, and is 5/8" at thickest point.  This piece contains a nice very small spider and a numerous other small insects.  The piece is clear but has some small air bubbles and one small internal fracture.  The spider is very small at approximately 1/16".  Other insects include a small bee, ants, and mosquito.  See pictures for details and email with any questions.   Open pictures in a new window for best results.   I will include a black floating frame with this piece for displaying.  Piece has been tumbled and polished.
