Here you get a 100 Ma old insect trapped in reddish brown honey-colored amber. The Burmite is dated in the geological era of Cretaceous (more accurate in the upper Albian 100 – 112 Ma). The cut and polished of the cabochon is very good and the transparency allows you to see more details under the loupe.
