I really like this Columbian Amber specimen! It dates back to the Miocene epoch(approx. 14 M.Y.A.) and contains 7 insects, four of which are large worker termites. The others include one ant that is partally obscured by air bubbles, an insect that I think is a tiny silverfish, and a beetle. There also seems to be a small amount of spider web trapped in the specimen. The aspect of this specimen that makes it so attractive to me is the fact that two of the termites have moving air bubbles inside of them, denoting two-phase inclusions! The insects and the bubbles are large enough that one doesn't even need a loupe to see them.
