Although the view is hazy and interrupted by hundreds of bubbles, there are a few good insect inclusions in this polished Amber specimen from Columbia. It dates back to the Miocene epoch(approx. 14 M.Y.A.) and contains a rather large, well-preserved spider, two flies, a seed pod or egg-casing of some kind, and a mysterious little object that looks a lot like a tiny mushroom, but could be a seed, an egg casing, or a number of other objects. I really want to find out what this thing is- maybe a nearby university can help me.
