Amber with Insects- Termites #2

  • $30.00

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 ~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.
