The baltic amber below has inclusions that were identified more than a decade ago by the late Polish entomologist Dr. Roza Kulicka, a co-author of the book "Amber- Treasure of the Ancient Seas", copyright 1983. The small strips of paper that accompanies the amber were written by her. All these ambers were her research study specimens. Baltocteniza kulickae, named in her honor, is the single species of a genus of trapdoor spider in the Ctenizidae family Ctenizinae that she discovered in baltic amber. Also note many of these are a deep crimsom color, known as ruby in the amber trade, and the most desirable.
