Madagascar Copal - Lizard
Madagascar copal is not rare, although it is not commonly found for sale. What is rare is a real lizard for sale. This lizard is a gecko, about 1.5 inches long. We know that this is hard to believe, but it is real. The lizard is full and complete, showing great details of skin.....just amazing. This is from the Pliocene Epoch (which is about 2.58 to 5.33 million years ago). It is not considered amber, but copal. This is a particularly fine specimen. We just picked this up from a French antiquities dealer in Poland. It is really a good piece at a great price.
