dinosaur in amber

From Advanced Amber Kretaceous Zoologia archive, this incredible dinosaur in burmite amber offers everything: skin, meat, blood, eyes and what every paleontologist is hungry for these days, bones. The thick powerful forearms appear to be connected to a flying or gliding membrane. The entire animal is very complete and as is common in amber many of its bones have dissolved, the remaining bones are those of the arms, hands, legs, tail and feet as well as other bones. The front arms and hands look similar to those of a lizard but if you look carefully the short thin legs with raptor like toes are more reminiscent of a true dinosaur than a common lizard. The long mouth of this animal also appears more like a dinosaur than a lizard and there are no lizard scales on this animal which further confirms that it is indeed a true dinosaur in amber from 99 million years ago.

streamer feathers in amber

From Advanced Amber Kretaceous Zoologia archive, a burmite amber fossil specimen containing immaculate feathered dinosaur remnants. Most protofeathers found in Cretaceous amber are very small indeed and often need magnification. This piece of amber contains various unidentified vertebrate remains but the highlight is the incredible tail that has a perfectly aligned and perfectly preserved set of streamer protofeathers. This piece has a tail that does not need scanning or magnification to be appreciated and hits the viewer with a real WOW effect. The photo provided shows the magnificent tail feather looking at the front of the amber specimen, and the reverse side has partial remnants of the dinosaur that sported this tail. If you would like to see the reverse side of this high-end museum piece you are going to have to purchase it. Other highlights include the fact that this amber is highly transparent without any darkness and just a pleasing light golden colour. The picture you see is not just a feather, the central shaft has dozens of streaming feathers coming out symmetrically on both sides of the central tail shaft. Perfect for making jewelry such as a pendant making this the ultimate gift for those that prefer genuine dinosaurs in real gemstones rather than a cheap replica.

Bid at The Saleroom website to win the proto-bat in Amber



protobat in Cretaceous amber

From Advanced Amber Kretaceous Zoologia archive. When this burmite amber fossil specimen was discovered it had already been fashioned into a pendant (note that the original cord is still attached). The clear amber reveals the partial remains of an unknown vertebrate animal. The most prominent remains are the bones and skin of a forearm, the head and the neck. Using magnification you will notice the bones under the skin and the teeth in the skull. Although it is a Cretaceous vertebrate it does not have the tell-tale protofeathers that identify it as a baby dinosaur and as such it is being offered with a very low reserve.


Lot 138

Weight (approx): 2.91 grammes / 14.55 carats
Dimensions (approx): 40 x 13 x 8mm

bird in Cretaceous amber with Feathers

From Advanced Amber Kretaceous Zoologia archive, a burmite amber fossil specimen containing a Cretaceous flying creature that is almost 100% complete from head to tail. The underside of this creature reveals classic protofeathers or feathers of birds that were very near the beginning of their evolutionary chain. Looking with a naked eye the entire form of the animal is clearly visible. This animal has far more on offer than its cute meticulously preserved skeleton. When viewed under magnification one can admire its incredibly tiny fine protofeathers and the head has a centurion style crest of feathers coming up from its head. Underneath the animal is a much larger protofeather that we suspect may have been part of its nest or maybe from its mother. Not only is the amber very clear it is very much 3-dimensional unlike the dark brown squished pancake ones in commercial science magazines.
