This polished Amber specimen has several inclusions, only one of which is really noticeable without magnification. That particular inclusion is a single ant that is very well-preserved with all of its legs and antennae present and intact, though magnification is needed to confirm this. It measures about 3-4 mm in length. Just under the surface on the opposite side are several tiny air bubbles. These do not more than 1 mm in diameter, so one must use at least 10-power magnification to see that some of them contain 2-phase inclusions, denoted by air bubbles trapped within.
