One of the largest pieces of Amber we have in our stock, this Columbian specimen has many inclusions, but is quite clear, so that details of the things it contains are easy to see. It is dated back to the Miocene epoch(about 14 M.Y.A.) and has 5 termites trapped in it that have good detail and are visible to the naked eye. There are many large air bubbles around the termites, and a large number of very small air bubbles. On examination of these smaller bubbles with a loupe, one can see that they all contain movable air bubbles, denoting two-phase inclusions. There are also several tiny granules, like pieces of sand, trapped in the fossil resin.
