The Amberlady for Fossil Bugs

Our Insects In Amber
inclusions in amber

The Amber Lady presents a remarkable collection of insect inclusions in amber. These specimens, mostly collected from the central mountain range of the Dominican Republic, are dated by geologists as being between 25 and 40 million years old. The fossil inclusions actually are more like 'mummies'. The DNA of these specimens is often intact and, unless they are exposed to the atmosphere, remain exactly as they were when the insect was entombed.

We can learn a great deal from these fossil bugs and plant life. For example, a Rutgers scientist recently discovered a new flower species from a sample trapped in amber over 15 million years old. Read about it here and compare it to our sample sp102. Is it the same species? We'd need a better microscope to be definitive.  Anyway, sp102 can be yours for only $200.

You may SEARCH OUR SITE for that desired fossil bug, a particular animal carving, or whatever you seek.

We've put together new 5 packs for $125 with pieces specially selected for value, variety and quality. Take a look ... these cannot be beat at this price!!!

We now offer our specimens as pendants and earrings. We have a number of prepared pendants and earrings or you can make a request. We also have put together several educational packages with sample specimens and an educational pamphlet for all the kids in your classes.

See especially our featured COLLECTOR PIECES; some are unbelievable!!
And then there is the DEAD ZONE - our SOLD collector bug archive. We also have an educational page for kids and educators. And we've just added our specially selected $125 5 packs.

You may now purchase one of our popular gift certificates online; good for any item we carry. What better gift for any occasion. And sign up for one of our special email newsletters, informative and often with special deals.

Specimens range in value according to the rarity of the inclusion, placement of the amber (visibility) and the aesthetic of the piece or how beautiful or interesting it is. The size of the amber is also a consideration as larger pieces are valued highly. Our inclusions are in polished honey colored amber.

And now we offer our specimens as pendants. We have a number of prepared pendants or you can make a request.

Tyranasaurus Rex skull The study of fossils in amber is not a Jurassic Park phenomena. As a matter of fact, the Natural History Museum in London is undertaking research to confirm that DNA can be extracted from insects ensnared in amber for millions of years. So before the sales pitch, we'd like to educate and entertain a bit ... Select any thumbnail below for a detailed photo of the subject fossil.

bee In 1995 Science (Vol.268) told how a bacterial spore was revived and cultured from the abdominal contents of bees preserved for 25-40 million years. Our bugs are from the same deposits as those bees.

fossil gnat in amber Here is a gorgeous example of a fungusgnat, courtesy of Mark Meyer's exceptional amber gallery. It's from Dominican amber near our deposits. Its features are remarkably preserved down to the hair on its body!

fossil damselfly in amber fossil bug in amber; a museum piece In 1995 Science (Vol.269, pg. 1819) had a damselfly (left) taken from similar deposits. This 'Lady in Amber', is part of an exhibit at the American Museum of Natural History.

fossil spiders in amber These two spiders are from the Swedish Amber Museum which has one of the largest single pieces of amber in the world; a 238 kg whooper!

fossil ant w/fossil aphid in amberWolfgang Wiggers of the University of Bremen has a fantastic collection of stereograph photographs. Here is a remarkable image of an aphid being carried by an ant. Look at his others.

new species from ebayA scientist bought this bug on ebay for about $30 and found it to be a new species of aphid !! We can't promise but maybe one of our pieces will make you famous. Read all about it.
