Description
fight between 2 ants in a baltic amber - 7.5×10.9×26.8 mm
PALEOGENE-Eocene, Ypresian (47.8–56.0 million years) - Poland

An exceptional museum piece.
This Baltic amber froze for eternity an uneven battle between two rival ants.
The smallest one, which already lost an antenna (the cut piece is clearly visible) tries to cut one of the biggest ant.
Size of the largest ant: Approximately 5 mm.
The amber also contains an aphid and a mite.
All my ambers are authentic, hand polished, tested by several methods (UV, etc...).
Pictures taken without a macro lens, the inclusion is much sharper in real life.
Age: 35 to 50 million years old.
Delivered in its protective box with glass top.
