  1. Hey all, here's the latest 99-myo addition to my amber collection. Not sure I've seen too many other scorpions as large or well-posed as this beefy fellow; he's a little over an inch long not including the pincers/arms. It's a thin piece so the often foggy clarity of Burmese amber is luckily avoided here with little oxidation.

    Displaying Amber

    Hi everyone, I have a habit of framing my best fossils. However, I found quite a bit that are so tiny, I’m not exactly sure how to frame them. First off, the fossils are Amber. I found a bunch of tiny pieces while I was cleaning my room in the bottom of a bin. I actually didn’t know I had them. I confirmed it was Amber today by doing multiple tests. I’m trying to figure out how to frame these. Part of me wants to encase the amber in resin, then frame that. However, I’m not sure if this is advisable. Can someone give me an opinion or advice on ho

    Amber or Copal?

    Hi everyone, I was going through my rock collection, and I found a bunch of very tiny rocks at the bottom of the box. I immediately thought they looked like Amber or Copal. I took them out of the box, and I did the UV test. It turns out, I was right. It’s either Amber or Copal. I can tell by how it is glowing under the UV light. I pulled out my microscope and looked inside it, and did not see any insects. Oh well, I said. Then, I decided to do the hot needle test on one of the small pieces. During the test, the small piece broke, and it was kind of sticking
  4. Hi there everyone! I’ve been wanting to expand my amber specimen collection for quite some time now and I recently came across a seller (which will remain unnamed per the forum rules) with some very interesting and unique listings posted on their page. I’ve included images of the specimens below; I was really hoping that y’all could give them a look and let me know what y’all think. The first specimen looks to have a lizard/snake skin inclusion. The second specimen contains small feather inclusions along with some even smaller organic matter. Both of these specimens are

    Paradoxosisyrinae indet.

    Taxonomy from Makarkin 2016. From Makarkin 2016, p, 127: "Derivation of name. From the Greek paradoxos [παράδοξος], paradoxical, strange, and Sisyra, a genus-group name of the family, referring to its mouthparts, which are unlike those of other sisyrids. Gender feminine. Diagnosis. May be easily distinguished from all other known genera of Sisyridae by a combination of the following character states: enormously long siphonate mouthparts likely lacking mandibles [mandibulate mouthparts in other sisyrids]; several setiferous calluses on head, pronotum present [absent in other sisyrids]; ve
  6. What insect is trapped in this amber? Please let the opinion of everyone. Cretaceous strata from Myanmar (about 99 million years ago) Size: 10x15mm I appreciate everyone's comments! thank you very much!
  7. Is this genuine praying mantis amber? If anyone knows, please let me know. I appreciate everyone's comments! thank you!
  8. Good evening fossil maniacs. I'd like to share a pictures that i made for one of my friend from Danmark. My hands was shaking when i making grindings and polishing of this specimen. Unfortunately specimen is not from my collection but for sure is worth for sharing. Extremely Rare Praying Mantis Nymph in superb condition and amazing position with well seen predatorial legs. High quality pic - https://ibb.co/jMsd0hY Second pic - https://ibb.co/XDfyNgF Cheers from the amber cave. Artur
  9. Hello! I have a question, I'm soon going to start collecting amber inclusions, but I'm not sure how to display or store them. I would like to see how some of you display / store you're amber inclusions! - Cheers Adriano
  10. I was wondering is there any way to determine the differences between these insects in Burmese amber? Is there anything different in comparison to their modern counterparts? I am looking into getting a mosquito, but midges look almost identical with the exception of the proboscis.

    Amber with cracks

    Question for the Amber experts : Recently I was looking at some of my Amber (Burmite) with inclusions with my magnifying glass Quite a few of them have internal cracks. Is this likely to become a problem some time in the future ? Are the cracks likely to develop further ? And possibly ruin the piece ? Any way of preventing that ? Soaking in some sort of consolidant or oil ?
  12. A calcite river, that is. Here are two burmite pieces that have a vein of calcite running through the arthropod inclusion. In this millipede sample, the calcite seems to have run along part of the dorsal edge of the animal, displacing it downwards. It is best seen in the images from within the millipede exoskeleton. The calcite flow was influenced by the tissue of the previously deposited inclusion. I thought it interesting that the process of cracking and calcite infiltration and solidification does minimal damage to the older tissue.
  13. Hello! My fiancé and I are located in Missouri. We have never found anything like this before and think it might be amber? We did several “at home” tests on it. It passed the acetone and the high percent isopropyl alcohol test. It did not get sticky or tacky. It is very light and we believed it to be a chunk of plastic at first. This is what it looks like under UV light. I can’t tell if it’s glowing or not? Any input is appreciated! Thank you!
  14. Hello Dear Friends. I have been hunting for a long time for something like this. Finally managed to hit the jackpot. Fantastic state of preservation of a lizard paw from the Cretaceous period - 99million years old, sunk in Burmese amber. 1cm, wonderful details. Claws, knuckles and skin in shockingly good condition - not oxidized at all. Enjoy and cheers from the amber cave. Artur

    Amber inclusions - Chiapas, Mexico

    I recently aquired some amber inclusion specimens from Chiapas, Mexico. Im interested if there is any good litterature or website that is recommended for identifying the different species? All help is welcomed!
