Product Description

A fully polished Amber specimen from the La Toca mine, Dominican Republic.

Held within the transparent Amber is a tiny insect, a winged planthopper.
While being just visible to the naked eye, the inclusion is too small to be seen in any detail without magnification.
Images 6 and 7 show an enlarged view of the beautiful little creature with its wings and limbs extended, perfectly preserved in its prehistoric time-capsule.
