This is a very nice fossilized ant in amber. It is a Worker Ant (Hymenoptera) from the Baltic Coast of Russia. Ants are rarer finds in amber than you may think. This specimen has nice detail - head, body, and legs are well preserved. Even the long antennae are easily seen. The large ant is nicely showcased in the honey-colored amber piece (the bright spot in the photo is a reflection, not in the amber piece). This is a very distinct Worker Ant trapped in ''fossil ooze'' (large close-up photo is included for free).

A Certificate of Authenticity from EXTINCTIONS is included with this specimen.
