Yellow Baltic Amber Pendant with Insect
Absolutely unique Baltic amber pendant containing a small winged insect. This quality pendant has a sterling silver bail.
It is very rare to find authentic Baltic amber with insects. This insect is eye visible in the transparent Baltic amber and located towards the centre of the pendant.
A professional magnifying loupe will be provided with this pendant so you can view the insect in more detail. A copy of "Amber" by David Penney will be included to provide an introduction to the fascinating internal world of amber. The author is a world expert on fossils in amber.
NOTE: There are many fakes and forgeries available on the market. Be wary of pendants with a large or "perfect looking" insect in the middle. Remember these insects are millions of years old and would have struggled to escape their sticky prison! Genuine insects are typically a few millimetres in size.
