Travel 40 millions years back in time and search for bugs trapped inside real amber!

Honest to goodness prehistoric bugs and plants from the past are hidden, trapped inside the real amber pieces in this kit. You'll use special gemstone grade sandpaper and the handy workstation to make your amber more transparent. What you uncover may surprise you!

An Adventure Guide, with wonderful photography, shows how to test for fake amber AND explains in detail how real amber is formed. Becoming stuck in sap-like goo was an unfortunate turn of events for many prehistoric creatures. Fortunate though, because your young paleontologist gets a chance to discover them.

    Information about Discover Amber Science Kit
    Posted 5/6/2013 by Amy Trepus

    My son was so underwhelmed. The pieces of amber were so small with no insects in it.

    The amber requires sanding to become translucent for the insects to be seen. If a product isn't clearly wonderful, don't let it bug you. Visit the Returns & Exchanges Center for quick assistance. We assisted our customer promptly.
