  1. I collected burmese amber. Surprisingly it had dinosaur feather. But I'm worried if this burmese amber is real. How to identify real amber? I heard real thing floats in salt water, after doing that, it really did. Is there any other way to identify real one?
  2. Hello all, I would like to add Amber to my fossil collection but i am lost online due to all the concern about fake Amber. Could anyone recommend a reputable site or person to purchase from? Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
  3. So, a little bit about my situation. I was on an auction, and I was able to get this piece of “authentic Dominican Amber with a zacryptocerus ant.” I know what you’re thinking, I probably should’ve posted this before I got it. However, I couldn’t because it was an auction that was ending very quickly. I didn’t have time. I took a gamble and got it. It arrived today, and I would like to know how I can tell if it is real or fake. Can someone help me out? Some details so far, it weighs 1.3 grams, and is 1 inch long. Jared
  4. My Dear friends, Here a little showing up but i must do it becouse this is essence of my passion ( not showing up but resoults of passion ). My first wasp named after me, finally <3 Helorus arturi was described by Jyrki Muona from Finland. Here is the article and pdf file. https://www.researchgate.net/publication/343997607_Helorus_arturi_sp_nov_Hymenoptera_Proctotrupoidea_Heloridae_from_Baltic_amber And a wasp pic. Cheers ! Artur
  5. Hi everyone, this is a piece of "amber" I bought a little while back. Not entirely sure if it's real so I thought I'd check here. It fluoresces green under a UV light and sort of smells sappy when pricked with a hot pin. Also included are some microscopic photos of the insect inclusions.
  6. Hello, I would like to share with the forum some amber specimens I possess. These fossils are encased in burmite, amber dated to ~99 million years ago. Anyone else have some?
  7. Greetings, dear forum participants. I would like to welcome everyone to discuss a sample of Baltic amber with a possible animal fingerprint. Place of origin Baltic Sea coast. The age of the find is unknown. Areas highlighted in the photo, presumably the animal's fingerprints. Between the possible prints there is an imprinted structure, presumably animal fur. In addition to photographs, I made a video showing how I remove a sample form from amber. ***Translation from Russian using google translator.

    Burmite Amber Insect Id help

    Hi everyone! Can anyone help me id some small insects in amber? They're all from Myanmar and about 99 million years old. They're pretty small, mostly about 2 millimeters or less. I took the best photos I could, any help narrowing down what type of insect (or possibly arachnid) is greatly appreciated.

    Amber beach find?

    After a storm recently I was walking down the beach and found a large rock in the surf at a beach off of Charleston, SC. The first photo is of the rock intact, the second is of pieces of the rock that broke off when I tried to lift it. I looked online for tests for Amber. I completed the salt water float test (the piece that I tested floated), hot needle (it smelled like pine resin), and acetone test (it did not dissolve). Having passed all of theses tests I'm feeling more confident that it might be Amber? Would love thoughts from the forum. Is it amber? Where would it come from to

    New Amber Photography Setup

    A while back I had posted asking about amber photography. Well, after a lot of research, and some expensive upgrades, I finally figured out a good setup. I am using a Cannon Rebel, with a 200mm lens, a few adapters, and infinity objective lens. The whole setup is mounted to an automated stacking rail and connected to my computer. I will usually take 100-250 photos per inclusion, and then stack them with a stacking software (Zerene Stacker). The end result depends a lot on the quality of the inclusion itself, as well as the clarity and shape of the amber piece, and the position of the inclusion

    Amber?

    Hey everyone, I found this piece when searching for fossils in the White River Formation. I found it at a site that produces a lot of petrified wood. I didn't think it was anything when I first picked it up, but am now thinking it looks like amber. What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance!

    Malvern Clay

    Hello Fellow Arkansans Have any of you folks ever gone to the amber field near Malvern? My grandson wants to go dig around, and once he is out of quarantine from his minimal exposure to COVID, I want to take him. I found amber there many many years ago with one piece having what looked like plant material and the other having an insect head. But I haven’t been back. I do have amber beads my great uncle bought when he was in the war and while they are beautiful, I am sentimentally attached. And, my grandson wants to find his own. Any information will be most appreciated.

    Amber

    From the album: Aguja Formation

    Amber is plentiful in the matrix, appearing as blood-red to orange resinous blobs.
  19. I have 1kg of rough Burmese amber stones ready to polish but I'm a little stumped as to where to start. I've polished Dominican pieces before using a dremel and wet sandpaper with success, but this stuff is older and much harder. In addition to the thin rough skin on these pieces, a lot have rock (or some combination of amber/earth) running through them making it difficult to figure out the plan of attack in regard to finding inclusions and getting a nice shine. Anyone here have experience with this?

    Amber or not?

    I have been finding a lot of these recently. They are waxy to the touch and come in a variety of pale white to orange tinted. Are these pieces of amber or are they some other kind of mineral? Thanks!

    Specimen Repair?

    I was wondering if someone could advise me on whether or not I should repair this piece of Chiapas amber I recently acquired (it's a clean break with only a few small slivers missing; the specimen is exceptionally clear, and has no internal fractures); it was damaged during shipping, and I've been debating whether or not to repair it. What effect might a repair have on it's value, and would it be more acceptable to keep it as two separate pieces? I know the repair of fossil specimens is a generally acceptable practice, but I'm uncertain if this applies to amber (I'm guessing not, a
  22. Good afternoon, I'm a new member here, and I was hoping to get some advice on what I should use for a macro setup on a budget. I'm a huge enthusiast of fossil amber, however I have no decent way of photographing inclusions; I have tons of specimens (many with fauna & flora inclusions) from all over the world, including New Jersey and Wyoming, and am eager to share images of them. I'm on a tight budget, and anything over $750 USD is right out; I have tried a few digital microscopes in the past, (most recently, the Hayear HY-1080 34MP), but none seem to give me suitable resoluti

"This discovery adds a super-cool piece to the puzzle of this obscure group of weird little animals," said study co-author Edward Stanley, director of the Florida Museum of Natural History's Digital Discovery and Dissemination Laboratory.

  24. Hiya everyone thinking of getting this small piece of amber says there’s a fly in it just wanting to know if it’s real there’s no information on age or that but the seller has sold me a real fossil so a little help would be great thanks
