Each week week we put up 2 specimens for sale as our "Sale of the Week" items. Actually it is more like a sale every fortnight. These items are dramatically discounted - and as normal there is a 100% guarantee of what you purchase! These are considered overstocked items. Sometimes we are not sure of the identification (which can often be to your advantage) and sometimes there are just a few extra of these rare fossils. However it happens, these are priced to sell - YOU WILL NOT EVER FIND A BETTER PRICE. If you think the price is too good to be true, remember that this is the "specials page" and there are only 2 specials per week. If you are still confused as to why they are so cheap, bottom line, this page is considered our "lost leader" page.

Special 1

Scirtidae is a family of beetles. These beetles are commonly referred to as marsh beetles, as the larvae are typically associated with stagnant water, but can be found in flowing water. Adults prefer decomposing plant material near the water's edge......Genus Scyphion.   There is one beetle and 1 true midge, Diptera, Chironomidae.

Not sure on either of these ''guesses'".   Small one might be a spider with an air bubble on the leg (?) and the other is a Dipteran.  Tip of the abdomen is at the edge of the amber.
