Amber with Insects- Termites #3

  • $55.00

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 1/4" and is up to  1/2" thick.  This piece has several flying termites and a few small insects.  There are several internal fractures.  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.
