  1. Is it possible to find baltic amber in gothenburg or close?
  2. Amber mystery inclusion

    Hey! I blindly bought a bunch of rough Dominican amber and found this thing dead center in a large piece. The main blob has bubbles in it so I thought it might just be a pocket full of air, but after looking at the microscope and seeing appendages I'm not so sure. Is this just a fluke or actually something? These are the best photos I could take – any ideas?
  3. Leaf in Amber

    Many things get stuck in sap and then turn into amber including leaves. If one were to sand it down, break it, cut it, etc and get the leaf out would it feel like a normal leaf or just crumble because it is 10s of millions of years old? I don't have a leaf in amber and I'm not planning on doing this just curious. And if there was a seed could it be planted and sprout a tree?
  4. I was encouraged to share this in the forum so here it goes. I was given a pile of "amber" and two pieces that may or may not (most likely not) have something inside. After the "amber" failed the saltwater float test it was proposed that I may have copal, NOT amber. I tried my best to take as clear of pictures as my camera phone would allow. The first piece supposedly it has a "bug or stick or something" inside. The copal, if it really is copal, does not appear very clear, even with a light source behind it. The second piece is a little more transparent when the light shines through with the exception of the mysterious dark object lurking on the middle. (queue the spooky music!) Personally I think that both of these may just be dirt that accumulated in a crack when the copal was forming a long ago but this has apparently been a topic of hot debate. So if ya'll got any opinions on the matter, I'd love to hear them...or if you don't want to share your opinions, just tell me that I've discovered some weird new sub-species of dinosaur and I'll be happy with that. lol
  5. Could this be amber?

    I found this on Charmouth beach (west) UK, last week on the shoreline. It weighs 57 grams. It has a dark appearance but glows orange when backlit by bright light. Any identification ideas would be appreciated Thanks!
  6. Anyone good with amber?

    I got this amber when I was a small kid. It used to have a tag with its source listed, but it's been lost for 12+ years, and I can't for the life of me remember what it said. Looking at it, does anyone know whether it's more likely to be Dominican, or Baltic? It is yellow, but has a slight gold tint, and is slightly translucent. There's a couple of small buggos in it.
  7. Insect form burmite amber

    Hello does anyone know what insect could this be? Its form burmite amber
  8. Seems the questions raised around that exciting news of an avian dinosaur preserved in Burmese amber were right after all. The original paper has been retracted by its authors, after the discovery of another fossil closely resembling the previously discovered skull portion of Oculudentavis was classified as a species of lizard, rather than an avian dinosaur. Disappointing for dinosaur fans, but it doesn't change the fact that any Late Cretaceous vertebrate preserved in this way is still an exceptional find.

  9. Hello my friends ! I just wanted do share pics of superb. male Jumping Spider ( Salticidae ) that i had. It is not often to see so amazing, colorful and well preserved eyes of jumpers so a little showing off I will upload more photos in comments. Cheers from Poland !
  10. Petrified wood ID help!!! Possible Amber?

  11. Fossil ID -Petrified wood with resin?

  12. Cranefly or mosquito? from Baltic amber

    Hello would this be a cranefly or mosquito? its from Baltic amber
  13. What is this insect in Burmese amber?

    What is this insect in Burmese amber?
  14. Green Amber?

    I discovered a dark green crystal near a construction site in a neighborhood of Alabaster, Alabama which sits in the southern tip of the Pottsville formation of the Pennsylvanian epoch. At first glance I noticed circular air bubble inclusions and assumed it was just glass. But, upon further inspection with a secondary light source, it appears there’s small material that resembles pollen in other inclusions. There’s striations visible that almost make it look like a green jolly rancher under light. It does not really feel like glass in your hand when held and has a greasy appearance. Anyone familiar with green amber??
  15. Sea shell in Burmese amber

    very little ( 1-2 mm in diameter) sea shells found in Burmese amber (presumably Cretacious period). What could it be?
  16. Amber with feather

    Small piece 1.2 x 1 cm. Says it contains tree bark and a small feather with keel. From Burma. Anyone ok with taking a look?
  17. Burmite amber bug

    I've got another insect of some sort (at least I think it's an insect) in some cretaceous period amber from Burma. Measuring about 1 cm long, with swept back antennae (I think) that run the length of it's body. Unfortunately, due to lack of resources, I can't get the really good, close detailed pics I'd like and this piece of amber is darker than normal. Which doesn't help with the pics. Anyhoo, 4 pics showing the full length. Not the best preserved, but still visible, although part of it looks to be missing. Any idea's as to what it might be? Other than really, really dead of course.
  18. Burmite bead bug

    Another little burmite bug. This one is in a bead just shy of 2 cm across. This bug is one of a few in it, and of course, the tail is angled down a bit. The bug itself is about 2 mm long & looks like it just sat there patiently to be covered with the resin. Seriously, it looks almost posed. 2nd pic shows the tail end a bit clearer.
  19. This unusual planthopper nymph is 6 mm long, is an inclusion in Late Cretaceous burmite amber, and belongs to the extinct family Neazoniidae. One of the characteristic features of Neazoniidae is a rostrum (piercing mouthpart) that is longer than its body. Specimens of this family were first described in 2007 by Jacek Szwedo in Lower Cretaceous Lebanese amber, followed by a 2009 paper on additional specimens in French Cretaceous amber. First photo of the insect in my collection is a ventral view of the triangular head -- with globe-like eyes and filament-like antennae -- and the thorax. The rostrum runs from the base of the head down the midline thorax. Second photo is a ventral view of the abdomen, with the rostrum extending beyond the body. Third photo is a side view, showing a remarkably flat body and a patch of plant debris stuck to a hind leg. Final photo is a dorsal shot of the head and thorax All these photos include views of hardened plates along the body known as sclerites or tergites. More information on Cretaceous Neazoniidae in Lebanese and French amber can be found through a google search.
  20. Bug molt or leaf?

    Found this in some Indonesian amber (Early Miocene age). Not sure if its a bug molt, dead bug before the resin landed on it, or a leaf. Tiny little thing, measuring 3 mm long x 1.5 mm wide. 1 pic at 55 x showing main item & what looks like a leg, 2nd pic at 100 x showing main item itself. I couldn't get better pics unfortunately as I'm working the amber by hand, so the other end is thick. The entire piece is only 4 mm x 5 mm x 5 mm x 5 mm x 12 mm in size (rectangular & kinda hard to hold). Any ideas?
  21. This is a species not described in any literature regarding the burmese Amber. I intend to publish a scholarly article describing it if my suspicions are correct.
