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

Very nice piece of Dominican amber.   Roughly like a small coin.  There is a lot of forest debris in here (cool).   This has a beetle mite, Acarina, Oribatidae, Brachypylina.  Beetle mites typically carry on their backs and legs bits and shreds of a former molt.

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.

Item 8

Very clear piece with a fat lauxaniid fly, Diptera, Lauxaniidae. There are a couple of midges, Chironomidae. There are a few surface cracks on this piece.

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.

Item 11

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

This is an interesting piece. It contains a number of water bugs (I think). About 8 of these insects scattered throughout. Now there is also a hole drilled through the piece, apparently for a necklace. Interesting. .

Item 14

Smallish piece of Dominican amber with a jumping spider. Irregular shape.

Item 15

Inside this amber is a gall midge, Diptera, Cecidomyiidae.  The wings are unusual since they are darkened.  I am assuming that the darkening is not real, but an artifactual in nature.

Item 18

A nice planthopper, Homptera, Cixiidae. These feed on plants and cause damage by sucking their juices or cutting leaves for storing their eggs. There is a large springtail, Collembola at the anterior end of the planthopper.

Clear piece that has a gall midge, Diptera, Cecidomyiidae - that is the smaller animal, the larger is probably a fly.  A very small part has chipped of giving an edge and rough appearance.

Item 21

Smallish piece of amber (maybe .6 inches) that has what I think is a death-watch beetle, Coleoptera, Anobiidae. Good details on this animal - I just do not know my beetles as well as I should (there are so many of them!)

I love pieces like this. There is a small gnat, nothing big......... but when you look around you can see the remains of a spider web. Very cool.

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.
