Beetle Exuding Gas, Fools Gold In Burmite Amber Fossil Cretaceous Dinosaur Era:
Burmite (Burmese) amber is difficult to acquire and has been dated to be Cretaceous in age (around 100 million years old) and would have been sticky resin during the time of the dinosaursand is being mined in the Hukawng Valley in Myanmar (Burma). NOTE:InDecember of 2016,a portion of the tail of a small dinosaur wasreported in a piece of Burmite amber and inJune of 2017, a nearly complete, extinct bird was reported in Burmite amber!
This is a fully polished, cabochon shaped piece of Burmite (Burmese) amber that contains a fascinating find: a beetle that is producing a stream of ancient bubbles from its abdomen! It is quite unique to find such an event trapped in time from the dinosaur age! There is also a group of pyrite (fool's gold) crystals that exhibit a golden flash when light hits them right.
The piece itself would look great in a piece of jewelry like a pendant in my opinion.
It is fascinating to know that this insect would have been on the Earth at the time of the dinosaurs and got trapped in the sticky resin that became amber over time!
Please see my other resin fossils including Dominican amber with inclusions, large Colombian copal with inclusions, and very rare Indonesian ambers (some of lovely blue and green color).
The piece itself weighs 0.5 grams with dimensions of 1.6 cmlength by1.2 cm width and 0.3 cm height.

Important Notice to Buyers in the States of WA, LA, VT, RI, and OK:I regret that due to recent Supreme Court decision overturning Quill and changing Sales Tax collection guidelines I will no longer be able to do business with you. Should you accidentally offer or purchase an item from me, I will cancel the transaction and you should receive refund. This is because I cannot meet the guidelines of these states to collect and report sales tax. This list may change as other states make decisions. I hope the platform will be able to collect for small sellers in the future so this will not be necessary.
