We have recently come across a small collection of about 20 Dominican pendants in pure silver. Each one has a insect inside. They are nice, good sized and we can offer them to you at a great price. When you order one, we reach in and send you the one that we pulled out. I will identify the insect(s) inside it when we send it to you.
An interesting pendant. 35 grams and about 2.5 x 1.5 inches in size. Lots of interesting forest floor debris inside, no insects, but what a 'looker'. And yes, the silver is 925 silver (pure, but non-tarnishing silver).
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.
This is an interesting piece. It contains an interesting crane fly. I am sure this is a crane fly, Tipulidae even though some of the body parts are distorted. There are a few flies, Diptera, Brachycera, with good details about them. One fly is near a plant part. This is a fun piece to look at under the microscope.
I am not sure where to start when I describe this specimen. It has 2 honey bees. As you may know stingless bee's in Dominican amber are not uncommon, honey bees are so rare - I have only seen one other in my lifetime. There is also a beetle - but with 2 honey bees, the beetle is not the attraction. I do not know about honey bees since I have only seen one - maybe this is a new species - not an outlandish idea. For the right person, this would be the highlight of one's collection. This is a rare specimen!
This is one that reminds me of the 'Stay Puff Marsh Mellow Man". It has a nice worker termite in it. In the intestines of termites are many bacteria and protozoans. When the animal becomes stuck in the resin and dies, the micro biome still lives for a while and emits carbon dioxide - which you can see the resulting bubbles around the animal. This particular piece even has a moving air bubble which means that there is probably water inside - 20 million year old water. This is a fun piece.
