Burmese Amber - Fossil cabochon - RARE Haidomyrmex (Hell Ant)

Location: Myanmar (Burma) Strata Layer: Cretaceous Specimen: Haidomyrmex (Hell Ant) Size (mm): 28x17 A vicious looking extinct ant in Burmese amber. These ants had scythe-like appendages on their head used for seizing prey that are unlike anything known from extant ant species. Fossil inclusions in amber are the most spectacularly preserved fossils in the entire fossil record. Only rarely in the fossil record you will occasionally have soft tissue preservation. However, in amber the preservation is so extraordinary you can sometimes see every facet of the insects eye. There is an enormous degree of biodiversity preserved, providing a glimpse into past ecosystems. Amber truly is a window into the past. Amber is fossilized tree resin that when polished has gemstone qualities. The preservation of insects, plants, and other inclusions is unparalleled in the fossil record, resulting in an incredible glimpse into past ecosystems. All items guaranteed genuine.
