Here ispiece of Baltic amber, 54 million years old with no animals. But wait - there is a fantastic thing inside - part of a spider's web. Lots of the web is strewn about, it even looks like a small insect is wrapped up in part. Spiders webs are rare and hard to find. This is a nice one. If you like these half as much as I do, you will love this ancient piece of amber.
Thisis a mayfly, Ephemeroptera. Mayfly adults (such as this adult male) have life spans of no more than a few days. On the transition from nymph to adult, they fly from the surface of the water for mating, but do not feed. They complete the mating process and die with in a day or two. Mayflies in any amber are very rarely found . This is a beautiful animal and so seldom seen. Life of only a day or two.............
You are going to love this. Inside this small piece of Baltic amber are the remains of a spider web. You can see how it was rolled and imbedded in the sticky resin 50 million years ago. Please also remember that you need a magnifying glass or microscope to see this - with the naked eye, you will not see it.
ou have to love this one. This is a shed from what I am going to guess is a lizard. Really cool, this even shows some patterns on the shed. One does not normally come across such a specimen for sale - they are usually in museums. There is even a very nice fly, Diptera, Brachycera, to cinch the deal. Enjoy this one.
