Large Wasp with Fly in Burmite Amber Fossil Dinosaur Age Cretaceous Period:
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.InDecember of 2016,a portion of the tail of a small dinosaur wasreported in a piece of burmite amber!
In June 2017, a nearly complete extinct bird was reported in this material!
This is a fully polished piece of Burmite (Burmese) amber that contains a very rare, large Ensign wasp with a long, tapered abdomen, probably from the Family Evaniidae. This particular wasp is partial as it is missing most of its head. There is also a Mycetophilid fly with the wasp.
A wasp of this size would be quite rare to find in any amber source.
Please click on or mouse over images to see a larger view.
The amber would look great set into a piece of jewelry like a ring or pendant.
When one realizes that this amber has been dated to around 100 million years old, it is something to see a wasp from that time!This waspwould have been on the Earth at the time of the dinosaurs including T-Rex.
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).

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.
