Description
Rarity - 2 scale ants in battle knotted from the Baltic States - Formicidae
PALEOGENE-Eocene, Bartonian (37.8–41.2 million years) - Russia

You are bidding on selected inclusions from one of the largest collections in Germany, which consists of amber from all over the world (Baltics, Dominican Republic, Mexico and Burma), and I am offering them for auction for age-related reasons.
Authenticity, quality and rarity are guaranteed, some pieces are suitable for museums, they constitute an estimated total of less than 1 % of all finds.

The Baltic amber forest tells a compelling story:

In an elongated drop of 4 x 2.5 cm, two formicine ants 8 mm fight
each other.

Large drops were pinned to the body, where the finest hairs are well
visible.

The fight is undecided, as the resin river carried them both into the afterlife,
where today they bring joy to the dedicated collector as a spectacular and very rare EXPERIENCE action!

3 multilayer shots are attached, where each millimetre has been photographed approx. 25 times.
