Description

All of our Fossils are 100% Genuine Specimens & come with a Certificate of Authenticity

Specimen:
Burmese Amber with Inclusion
Age: Cretaceous Period ~ 66-145 million year old
Location Found: Burma

Burmese Cretaceous Amber is much older and rarer than both Baltic Amber and Dominican Amber.

Amber Inclusions are unfortunate animals, insects, plants etc. which became entombed in tree resin (not tree sap) millions of years ago. With the inclusion engulfed, the resin slowly hardened through a natural polymerization of the original organic compounds. This hardened material is known as Copal, which preserves the inclusion perfectly. Through time the Copal becomes buried and, over a several million year process, slowly turns into what we know as Amber. Incredibly this process has allowed us to marvel at ancient specimens frozen in time, as if captured only yesterday!

*We would always suggest using a magnifying aid to view your specimen to truly appreciate the inclusions stunning frozen detail. Inclusions can include such specimens as fliesgnats, midges, beetleswaspsantsspidersseedsplants and more!

Measurements are as accurate as possible, though be aware measuring precise dimensions can be difficult from irregular shaped items. Whilst we portray colours as close to life-like as we can, colours will vary if taken in sunlight, indoors, from monitor to monitor and device to device. Once this specimen is sold, we will update this listing with new similar selected item, with a new photo and dimensions.
