This example of amber is of Miocene age (around 14 million years old), and originated in a tropical rain forest. The amber has preserved at least a half-dozen insects, including several gnats, two flies, and something else which is the largest insect here. The amber is quite clear, and the insects are very well-preserved, yet I cannot identify this insect. The documentation says "beetle", but it does not look like one to me.
