Burmite amber with dinosaur feathers?

Recommended Posts

Hello! I see this 3 amber Burmese pieces with feathers.

The seller told my that the feathers are from dinosaur. I am looking for amber information but is difficult to find a good resource.

What do you think?

Not sure if those are dinosaur feathers, but those are some pretty nice pieces of burmite (Burmese amber). Burmite has been called the hardest amber around & is roughly 99 million years old. Those look like they are genuine & I wouldn't mind having them myself. So.. if the price is right, I'd say go for it before someone else does. @holdinghistory might be able to shed a bit more light on them.

I'm not sure how one would go about identifying (with any kind of accuracy) what animal it came from.  :headscratch:

That said, ... have a look at this PDF.

 

Another paper. 


Here's one about Canadian feathers in Amber.

These were all found by Googling "Dinosaur feathers in Amber PDF"

Another approach is to contact the primary authors of these papers, some may respond.
