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.
