This page is different from the other pages. This has only Baltic amber with spiders. Sometimes there are other animals, but all pieces have at least one spider in them.
Rather nice sized piece of Baltic amber with a few rough corners (gives it distinction). Spider is small, but visible.
This is a small piece of Baltic amber. Inside it is a 1st instar mite. If you are into mites, this is a nice piece at a good price. The casual collector may not be interested because of the size.
Smallish sized piece (not super small, but not large) with a spider at an 'interface' of two resin flows.
An interesting piece of amber. This has not been 'cleared' so you are seeing something 'as it really is". The spider is off to the side and fairly nice!
Nice sized piece with one end not polished. The piece has not been cleared so the spider is difficult to see.
Nice piece of amber, I like the shape. The spider is at the end of the amber, small and hard to see.
Nicely polished piece, small spider, but visible. This is a small, clear piece of amber.
Parasitidae is a family of predatory mites in the order Mesostigmata. They are the only family in the superfamily Parasitoidea. Relatively large for mites, their color is often yellowish to dark brown. There is also a very nice dark winged fungus gnat, Diptera, Sciaridae.
A small piece of amber, very clear with a small spider. You need a magnifier to see this beauty (Salticidae family)
Contains a fly, Nematocera and a spider, female. It looks like the end of the abdomen is open, but it is filled with amber.
Small, almost triangular shaped piece of Baltic amber with two spiders right next to each other. One spider is very small and the other 'just' small.
If you need a spider mite for your collection, here it is, Acarina, Orbitidae. Spider mites are small and the amber is small also.
Here is a Baltic mite. Mites are small, but they can have fascinating detail, like this one.
An irregular shaped piece of Baltic amber. It does have a very nice (and small) spider on one edge. There was also a springtail at one time (at another time when I was looking), I just cannot find it now.
Clear piece of amber with a predatory mite, Acarina, Parasitidae. There is also a small wasp, Hymenoptera.
Nice small spider (photographs well) in the family Salticidae. this is a jumping spider.
Large parasitic mite, Acarina, Parasitidae. The amber is fun, very polished, wavy, nice.
Smallish piece of amber. This has a beetle mite, Araneae, Oribatidae and also a female ant, Formicidae.
I will loosely call this a jelly bean sized and shape piece of amber. Smallish, but good, spider near the edge.
A lot of stuff inside this piece. 1 spider, an Opiliones (harvestman) and it looks like 5 beetles, Coleoptera.
