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?

Nice amber! I have quite a few pieces of amber from Burma, including this cool ichneumon wasp.

I have a few pieces.

I have some pieces as well, but no inclusions like those. And no ability to get pics like that either. :unsure:

I currently only have this Pseudoscorpion in Burmese amber. 
Hope to aqcuire some more pieces one day if the conflict and political unrest is over in Myanmar.

I buy some from a seller that is only 50-100 miles from here. Good article in Science Magazine about it last year or the year before.

Also fun to use UV light on them:

I’ve got several pieces of Burmese amber and a couple hundred still to polish and sort but I also don’t have a way to take good pictures of them
