Insect in amber

Okay, Jurassic Park stretched a point slightly, but insects in amber are still cool. These little pieces come in plastic display boxes with magnifying lids, allowing you to have a better look at the bug. 

The amber is from the Baltic Sea, found on the beaches near Kaliningrad, Russia, and between 35-50 million years old.

The pieces themselves are small, between 1 and 2cm, and come in a little plastic magnifying box.
