Item 2

Here is one that yo do not see often. There are two lightning bugs, Coleoptera, Lampyridae. You can see the beautiful patterns on their bodies. I must tell you that one section of the amber has been chipped near one of the lightning bugs and this leaves a jagged edge at that spot. The bugs are beautiful though....and the pattern on them is extraordinary. Really a plus for anyone.

Item 3

I think this is a caddis fly, Diptera, Trichoptera, it could be a moth, since it was difficult to see the mouth area. This is a very nice caddis fly though. Also included in this piece is a fungus gnat, Diptera, Mycetophilidae and very an unusual mite (good sized).

I have always like plant parts in amber. Here is the stem from a leaf - and just a beautiful piece. Lots of animals buzzing around inside, a midge, gnat and fly. Great fun to look at.

Item 7

I love this piece. I get a kick out of looking at organic debris and air bubble without a microscope. This has everything. It even has a couple of worker termites, Isoptera to boot. A very fun piece - just think about the 'ancient air' that has been trapped for 24 million years.

This small piece contains a dance fly, Diptera, Empididae. The dance fly is whole, even though it appears not to be.

Item 10

Here is a pseudoscorpion. Pseudoscorpions are very small - this being no exception. They are very uncommon in amber and command the highest of prices. This one is at the edge of the small piece of very clear amber, and is complete. It does not show hardly at all on the scan. Since is a pseudoscorpion all by itself on this page - the price is VERY good for this specimen! The amber is a round cab shape.

A small parasitic wasp, Hymenoptera and two really cool looking, collapsed air bubbles. Just think these bubbles contain air from 24 million years ago.

Item 23

Flat piece with some material that reminds me of a leaf (not a leaf though.) The biggie with this is that there is a mite off on one side. Really cool, you just do not see these very often. And this piece is priced to sell.

This piece has 2 sterile female ants. One is curled and the other stretched out. There appears to be some organic debris here possibly from a wood boring beetle. Nice piece.

Here is a very large piece of amber, 21.6 grams, mostly polished, but two sides are not (makes it look better). There is what looks like a stick going through the dark amber and this also has 3 worker termites scattered in the fossilized resin. Cool piece, good sized.

This piece screams "make me into a pendant" (really). Perfect size, very clear and it has a small caddis fly, Trichoptera and a male fungus gnat, Diptera, Mycetophilidae. The price is good so even if you mess up, it will not 'kill' you.
