not possible for a bug to be in a herk. look at how they are formed. how long they take to form. they arent amber. thats just a carbon inclusion.

Exactly. Bugs don't occur in quartz crystals.

Sure does look like a bug but bugs hadn't evolved yet. These quartz are Cambrian. Perhaps that is why the word "bug" is in quotes. Maybe it is a fossil sea scorpion or eurypterid nymph.
