    I'd imagine it's purchased, I've recently bought a fair bit of amber (spiders, flys, wasp, ants, and a cockroach!)
    Might post it on here, but it may be worth opening a new section for bought fossils
    Nice midge though! Smile

    This one was a buy, yes. It would be worth a section of forum like that.
