Amber Centipede Paperweight
I bought these paperweights for their novelty. Nice safe way to get a close-up view of a deadly centipede. The embedded centipede is real and very large for its size. It is embedded in Baltic Amber that was cast from genuine chips that were melted down into a liquid that could be poured.
Amber is prehistoric pine resin which has fossilized over the millennia. Although actually organic, it is sometimes considered and used as a gemstone. Most amber is in the range of 30-90 million years old.
