    Baltic amber inclusion - unknown

    I've been "patiently" working on a piece of Baltic amber by hand (no power tools), trying to get a good view of an inclusion I found. I still have to work the opposite side down more (about 2.5 mm or so) to get a decent view from the other side, but I'm hoping these views will suffice for now. The first 3 pics are with using my Dino-Lite at 100, 150 & 200x, the 4th pic is a screenshot at 200x using the measurement tool. It's really tiny. No real idea what it might be, but it almost looks like some sort of embryo, especially with the lower ball shaped part, but I could be wrong. Most of
  2. I found this piece while looking through a kilo of Amber and it's a bit different to the usual - there is something distinctly fibrous inside. Usually its the internal patterns of the Amber but this isn't. Unfortunately, its super hard to photograph. I think its probably something like mold or pollen, although I can't see any distinct seed pods etc - going to clean it up a little more tomorrow. I'd appreciate any input. Thanks, John
  3. Hi, Purchased this Baltic Amber from Lithuania. Tried the black light test and the very clear amber turns opaque cream like color. Please see pics. Is this possibly fake? Thanks!
  4. Greetings, dear forum participants. I would like to welcome everyone to discuss a sample of Baltic amber with a possible animal fingerprint. Place of origin Baltic Sea coast. The age of the find is unknown. Areas highlighted in the photo, presumably the animal's fingerprints. Between the possible prints there is an imprinted structure, presumably animal fur. In addition to photographs, I made a video showing how I remove a sample form from amber. ***Translation from Russian using google translator.
  5. I bought this lamp to hunt for amber but im not sure if its the right one. It says its 250 lm

    Baltic amber insects Eocene

    Well it's been a very long time since I posted here so hello to everyone Had this Baltic amber as a present, it has two nice specimens in it A beetle and a fly, I hope the pictures are okay I took them with my microscope i also did the hot pin test on it and it smells like burnt wood Any one have any ideas on species ? I forgot to mention sizes they are only small 2mm-3mm at Most
  7. So I recently got this Baltic amber and I found out that there is a test that includes water and salt and if the amber sinks then it's fake but if it floats, it's real and mine sank but I'm not sure could you please examine it yourself? And also the spino tooth if you can. Thanks
  8. My dear friends, I'd like to show up a little. As everyone know i am baltic amber inclusions maniac, lover and re-searcher. At my begining i had dream about fining a holotype or seomething extremely rare. With time and determination, we all can do big things, even if its very hard and even we are exhausted. As in every market, here in Poland is very hard to find honest sellers of raw ambers who did not check material for inclusions. To be honest - i must keep fingers crossed if they miss something and i will find it. All the best things are gone at start ( amber fishers and
  9. I've recently been engaging in my pointless and worthless hobby of photographing inclusions in amber. Baltic amber on this occasion, and my favourite type of inclusions, ants. However, I have a question about the structures that I see on the ant's heads, and I wonder if anybody could fill me in? I've done some googling with limited results. My question pertains to the ocelli, organs on the heads of ants which in some way assist them with navigation. First of all, in this picture, you can see a structure between the two antennae, which looks quite similar to a human skin
  10. Hello all. I went to a show recently and purchased this piece of amber with an apparent spider inclusion for $78. I don't have all the materials to do testing, but the piece has no taste. Could anyone help me determine if this is legit by looking?

    insect in Baltic amber

    Hello everyone! Thanks to the generous @caldigger I have received my very first fossil insect, and I was wondering if anyone can help me identify it further - it's in Baltic amber from Palanga, Lithuania, and it's from the Eocene. Here are some pictures: Thanks so much! Monica

    Help with Identification

    Dear Fossil Forum I'm just getting started and trying to get up to speed with my own specimens. I have two poor quality pictures of insects, looking for some help with identification. One is a bi map file of a white spider and one is of a small fly. These specimens are in Baltic amber from Latvia. Please help, any comments would be appreciated! Jimmy

    Baltic Amber, Fossil, Formicidae, Ant Probably Kalingrad area, Russian Federation Eocene epoch, circa 44 million years ago The Baltic region is home to the largest known deposit of amber, called Baltic amber or succinite. It dates from 44 million years ago (during the Eocene epoch). It has been estimated that these forests created more than 100,000 tons of amber. Today, more than 90% of the world's amber comes from Kaliningrad Oblast of Russia. It is a major source of income for the region; the local Kaliningrad Amber Combine extracted 250 tonnes of it in 2014,[3] 400 tonnes in

    Baltic Amber insects

    This is my first post here. I'm a writer and photographer. Because of circumstances I have been forced this winter to photograph mostly at home, so I started doing some macro photography. Then I found interesting leftovers from the spiders in the basement, and long story short; I started taking pictures of insect inclusions in Baltic Amber. The difficulty of the subject matter intrigued me greatly. I have started to read "History of Insects" by A. Rasnitsyn, D. Quicke (Kluwer, 2002), to understand amber and inclusion process, and "Insects of Britain and Western Europe" by M. Chinery (A and C B

  23. Hello everyone. My boyfriend and I have began to collect amber fossils about two months ago. Mainly we get amber from Myanmar, for the beautiful yellow color of the resin. My boyfriend was able to find a legitimate direct source to acquire freshly mined Baltic amber, we couldn't be more blessed! The Baltic amber is quite stunning in nature and holds fascinating history. Here I like to show everyone some pieces from our collection we are the most proud of. We do not know what's encased within, hopefully in time we'll learn enough to identify. For now, we enjoy the beauty of the unknown (and
