Giant Leaf in Amber

 

Giant Leaf

This is one of those pieces that is unbelievable.  The first thing that catches your eye is the giant leaf.  This leaf is big, no I would say huge.   This is the largest leaf I have ever seen.  The piece itself is about 4 inches x 3 inches x .5 inches.  This is a monster piece - the type of piece you place on your desk for others to see.  No microscope needed here.  

Not only is the leaf huge and utterly impressive, but there is so many insects in this piece that you know the swarm landed here and never left.  There must be many hundreds of gnats all over.  Also, there is the occasional ant, immature planthopper and even some sheds of spiders (not sure if they are spiders) and even a termite .  I even saw a small flower in this.  The longer you look at it, the more you see.  

I would consider this to be the cap stone of any collection.
