amber insects…

More insects in amber…

Amber secrets “Ancient Mite Caught Hitching Ride on Spider.” from by Jennifer Welsh.

I absolutely love to see macron pictures or pictures like this. This piece of amber is over 49 million years old and the spider and mite have been together since. More pictures of insects trapped, here. The ring below was made for me by a local jewelry expert, I found my piece at a Tucson Gem Show. Basically a tree discharges resin and a bug or plant gets trapped within and then the resin become harder over the years and waa laa. The piece of resin has a termite swarmer in it, it just was right for me. This piece of resin is probably about 250 million years old. Termite guy = termite ring. A unique piece of jewelry for the unique me.
