Amber with Insects- Termites #2
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 ~7/8" at the longest by ~7/8" and averages 1/4" thick. This piece has a nice flying termite that is nice and clear on one side but more difficult to see from the other due to a lot of small air bubbles. Several other small insects are also present. 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.
