[ Inclusion Inside Baltic Amber ] Pseudoscorpion + Enhydros ( "running water" ). Rare but not extremely rare.
vermiculosis posted a topic in Micro-paleontologyDear friends, i hope i am not boring with my amber passion Its real obsession for me This time i'd like to show wonderful, i can say - almost perfect Pseudoscorpion ( False Scorpion ). People thinks often that is extremely rare but its not. I had i think about 30 pieces in career. Often they are very small, even only 1mm. This one had 2mm in max with body and pedipalps. What is interesting - do you see that drop inside ambdomen ? It was Enhydros "running water" but there is huge discussion in amber inclusion market what exactly it is. One side ( with me ) think that is running drop of water inside air sap. Second side think that is moving air bubble. Please check my movie from yt - i showed other amber with very nice Enhydros. I am sorry for the music - if someone got soft ears, turn off sound. For me logical is drop of water. What do you think about it ? If we talk about picture colours - i was playing with lights. Best one in friends opinion ? Cheers from Poland. Artur
MeargleSchmeargl posted a topic in General Fossil DiscussionI remember exactly how I got pulled into the world of paleontology. It was back in the third grade when my passion was ignited by my teacher at the time, Ms. Sisler (kudos to her). She was running through the day's science section, and she told us about the process of fossilization. I do not know how this hooked me, but after class I asked her for more about it. She pointed out a large 300 page book with many multiple photos and descriptions of various fossils and said "dig in". I did not put the book down once for the rest of the day. And that is where it all started for me. You got a similar start up story? Share it with us below!
