This small polished piece of Baltic Amber has a relatively pale yellow color and is transparent and quite clear. It contains a variety of inclusions, three of which are insectoidal. These three insects are all of a variety of fungus gnat that one might mistake for mosquitos. All appear to be in excellent condition, though two of them are much more expoosed and easier to see than the third. Under 15-power magnification, one can just make out the patterns made by the veins in their wings, and their legs are clearly visible.
