Fossils in Amber.
Amber is naturally hardened resin. Best known is the Tertiary amber from pine trees - most commonly from the Amber-Fir - Pinus succinifera - that grew on the coast of the northern Baltic in the Oligocene about 30-35 million years ago. In amber we may find fossils of insects, leaves and other material that got stuck in the resin. The fossils consist mostly of empty cavities, but the impressions in the amber can show even the finest small hairs on a fly. Amber is found among other places on the beaches of Poland, Denmark and Russia. List of contents in the amber showcase
