PALEOGENE-Eocene, Ypresian (47.8–56.0 million years) - Baltic states

Object: Baltic amber with perfect fossil inclusion
Scientific name: Giant Hoverfly Syrphidae
Origin: Baltic states
Geological Period: PALEOGENE-Eocene, Ypresian (47.8–56.0 million years)
Condition: Good condition
Dimensions: 12×6×5 mm

The most impressive inclusion of my entire collection!

Huge fossil, 50 million year old fly, enclosed and forever immortalised in this beautiful Baltic amber.

This quality and size are really extremely rare and can be found at horrendous prices. The compound eyes are gigantic and due to the crystal clear view into the interior of the amber, all the intricacies of the fly are visible - almost as if it had just risen again from bygone times.

A truly great piece of natural history.
