Amber Stone

Recommended Posts

porotto

A piece of amber stone found along the Cuyuni river in Guyana. It has insects trapped

inside, witch appears to be termites. How old do you think this piece could be?

Have a nice day!

Amber can be Cretaceous to Pliocene

That is amber (fossil tree resin). The type known from Guyana is about 15 million years old.

This is a nice piece!
