    Burmite oddity

    Not sure if this video will work or not. This is a short video of something weird I just saw in a piece of Burmese amber. This piece has had nothing done with it in months,, remaining closed up in a container with no contact with liquids of any sort. Yet, I seem to have liquid moving around inside? The insect is what I was originally trying to view (Fairy Wasp). Any idea's on this? I'm at a loss on this. I realize some won't want to dl the video, but I assure you, my computer is virus free. Just not sure how else to present this. 694115955_A001-20210319_012846.wmv

    Bug guts in amber?

    The title may seem odd, but I think the pics will show why. This piece of Burmese amber that I got from @holdinghistory back in May has an interesting inclusion. Piece measures 2 cm x 1.5 cm & the main part of the inclusion is 5 mm x 3 mm. Not sure what type of bug it was as the head is gone, but the amber fractured in such a way that you can see what looks like calcified intestines inside the bug. Both ends of the bug are gone, but it makes for an interesting inclusion. I had read that occasionally the innards can calcify and this might be one of those times. I put a small amount of clear

    Fairy Wasp

    Finally found a bug, completely by accident, that I could identify. I was looking at a piece of burmite with part of a leaf present when I noticed a tiny little insect just under the leaf. Using my 10 x loupe, it was fairly tiny, so I checked it with my dino-lite. It was what appeared to be a tiny wasp like critter. So after working the backside of the piece down a bit (not wanting to destroy the leaf) I got these views. Pic 1 is at 50 x, pics 2-4 are at 200 x with #4 being cropped & enlarged from 3. A tiny, short lived parasitic wasp that has (still exists today) odd shaped wings with a f

    Fibrous plant material in amber

    I'm guessing this is either a bit of fibrous plant material, or someone built a time machine & left some woven cloth in Burma a long time ago (around 99 mya). The inclusion is roughly 2 mm in length and curved, making it difficult to photograph. Pics 1 - 3 are a top view, 4 is from below & harder to get. Pic 5 is the entire piece of amber measuring 17 mm in length with this inclusion circled in red. So plant material or part of a fairy cloak?

    Burmese amber bug

    Got another Burmite bug for possible ID. Roughly 1 mm in length. The wings are there, just apparently very thin & almost the same color as the amber itself. Seems to be very well preserved for being 99+ myo. Once my microscope comes in, maybe I can get better pics, but for now.
  7. Hello, this is my first time at attempting to trade fossils. In this trade I have a variety of fossils that I am willing to trade for other fossils (This is all offered together). I am specifically looking for amber inclusions, Mesozoic vertebrate material, dinosaur fossils, and small theropod teeth from any location. 1- Large Clam Shell from the Jurassic of Madagascar 2- Enchodus sp. fang from the late Cretaceous of North Texas 3- C. Hastalis (Mako) Shark Tooth from bone valley of northern Florida (1.6 inches long) 4- 2 Burmese amber specimens from the

    Beetle

    From the album: Beetle

    A small beetle exquisitely preserved in 99 million year old Burmese amber.
  9. Hello, a couple of weeks ago I bought a piece of amber. All the seller told me was that he had no idea what it could be. It has some cracks, I presume that’s why he sold it to me for a really low price. The piece is less than an inch in length. It is from the early cenomanian (98-99 million years old). It comes from the Hukawng Valley in northern Myanmar.

    Arachnid? in Burmese amber

    Hi guys and gal, I recently bought some burmese amber pieces online. When I looked through this particular piece, I was amazed at the inclusion within it. It looks like a spider or tick, or some type of arachnid, however I am no entomologist. I was wondering if one of The Fossil Forum’s members could help me id this mysterious little critter. The specimen come from northern Myanmar/Burma and is about 99 million years old from the middle Cretaceous period. I have never seen an insect like this. It is quite squared in shape. It is a small insect around 3-4 mm. Through a 10x le
  11. I read news stories about the discovery of extinct birds in Myanmar being preserved in Burmese amber. Does any have an idea of how these birds could have survived in Burmese amber without their skin decomposing? Can you image a Miocene fossil bird from the Caribbean being preserved in Dominican amber?

    Wing in Burmite Amber

    Recently, I went to burmite market in Myitkyina City, Kachin State, Myanmar. I bought a few Burmese amber (burmite) include this little one. It is about 1 and half inches big (roughly square shaped) inside there is a wing. I am not sure about what wing it is and I am guessing a butterfly. What do you guys think what wing it is.
