Fat Cretaceous Wasp in RED Burmite Amber Fossil Gemstone Dinosaur Age:
Please see my response. I have been selling amber fossils for over 10 years on anddo not sell fake amber only genuine material from now extinct plant sourcesnot glass or plastic embedded with present day inclusions.
Burmese (Burmite) 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 dinosaurs and is being mined in the Hukawng Valley in Myanmar (Burma).
InDecember of 2016,a portion of the tail of a small dinosaur wasreported in a piece of burmite amber, and in June 2017, a nearly complete extinct bird was reported in a piece of burmite amber!
This is a fully polished piece of authentic red Burmite (Burmese) amber that contains a unique, fat wasp that coexisted with the dinosaurs during the Cretaceous Period.
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 weighs1.0 grams with dimensions of 1.85 cmlength by1.4 cm width and0.5 cm height. NOTE: 2.54 cm is 1 inch.

Please note that the saltwater test to identify real from fake amber is not reliable. The saltwater test claims that real amber will float in saltwater while fake amber will sink.
However, many amber sources or even specimens will not float in saltwater as their botanical (plant) composition as well as fossil inclusions are such that they are more dense than saltwater and so sink. I do not sell fake amber. My response should help demonstrate this.
