Hmmm. Any chance some hint of color was preserved? The picture on that

I wonder if amber can preserve original colours at all, or whether chemical
processes in the resin might alter the colouration (but not necessarily the
patterning). A quick Google search resulted in comments like colour 'pattern'
or iridescence being preserved, but most of the pictures of amber-encased
fossils tend to show little more than shades of brown.
Patterning is useful info too.
