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 reasons of age.
Authenticity, quality and rarity are guaranteed, partly suitable for museums.
Burmite is the name of a type of amber that is considered to be the amber with the greatest number of inclusions.
In the Cretaceous, the period in which the dinosaurs lived, various flora objects, like blossoms, leaves and moss developed.
This honey-coloured oval cabochon of 1.6 x 1.2 cm contains a RARITY - a perfectly preserved, 5 mm long larva of an Ascalaphidae, also
called ‘owl fly’, spun into a web!
The plier-like mandibles that this species uses to grab its prey are especially impressive.
This is a rare auction specimen because of the spider web around the insect.
One of the rarest and most fascinating larvae from the oldest amber forest for the sophisticated inclusions collector.
The value of an inclusion stone mainly depends on its rarity, and it’s less than 0.1 % in this case!
