Faceted Amber with Mosquito Inside
Amber is fossilized tree sap that is at least one million years old. Rare amber contains traces of ancient life – including insects, spiders, and even dinosaurs.
Amber is a purely organic gemstone. Very rarely, an entire prehistoric flower or animal is trapped and visible inside a piece of amber. This example has been faceted to exhibit its treasure: an entire 99-million-year-old mosquito.
