Copal with Insects
Specimen pieces of fossil included Copal with insects in. Copal is a form of fossilised tree resin, similar to Amber; but much younger.
No specific age is given on these pieces, although these pieces are thought to be from the Pleistocene.
These pieces do contain a variety of insects – the piece we have photographed had two small flies, but there are a range of other bugs and pieces of insects that can be found. The grade B pieces do contain some inclusions, dirt, etc. The grade A pieces tend to be a bit cleaner, or may have more insect inclusions.
The pictures you see here are representative of the products and are usually not the exact item you will receive. Where various grades are available we do try to photograph each grade – but some photographs are still on their way!
