Illuminated partial nodule of transparent amber (see related entry) from a now-inaccessible site near Golling an der Salzach, Salzburg, Austria; specimen weighs 2.5g and measures 24x24x9mm. This specimen is slightly coated in matrix, and is similar in dimensions and identical in weight to the other Golling specimen, detailed in a separate entry. Transmitted LED light was used to display the piece's clarity. Amber from the Roßfeld (Rossfeld) Formation is dated to be early cretaceous (Hauterivian) in age.
