Trapped in amber approximately 50 million years ago this is a fine example of a spider from ages ago.  This very fine piece was found in Lithuanuia, weighs 9.3 grams, measures 1.5" x .75" and is mounted on an acrylic display with magnifying glass.  Perfect for amber lovers or as a school display.

Amber (Bursztyn in Polish) is fossilized tree sap that dates back 40 million years.  It comes from all around the world, but the highest quality and richest deposits are found around the Baltic Sea.  During the colder months, when water density reaches its highest point, amber floats up from the seabed and is washed to shore by the waving sea. Amber is the only fossil resin that contains 3 to 8% succinic acid, a multi-purpose therapeutic substance, that was prescribed by early physicians for headaches, heart problems, arthritis and a variety of other ailments.  In ancient times it was carried by travellers for protection.  All of our amber is directly imported from the Baltic city of Gdansk, Poland.
