Amber with Insects- Termites

  • $35.00

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 7/8" and averages 1/4" thick.  This is a nice clear piece with a multiple flying termites and several smaller insects.  There are quite a few air bubbles that make it seem less clear.  There is a small internal fracture visible in pictures, but is not glued.  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.
