Feather in Burmite Dinosaur Age AmberDescription: The amber from the Late Cretaceous of Myanmar is known as Burmite, a derivation for an old name for the locale.Burmite is one of the most well-studied sources of exceptionally-preserved arthropods and plants A number of individual feathers have been found preserved in amber, some of which have been attributed to dinosaurs, and others to enantornithineFossil Amber Feather birds. To me this one looks most like the feathers found associated with the wings of young birds that were recently discovered preserved in Burmite. Given the fact that most scientist believe that birds are dinosaur descendants one could just call them dinosaur feathers, but I will stay away from what I consider hyperbole. This specimen comes with a certificate of authenticity from the Gem and Jewelry Test Center (China).
