AMBER FROM THE SUFFOLK COAST
 
40 million years old

Small pieces of amber from the Suffolk coast presented in a glass-fronted gemstone display box.


Amber has been picked up on England’s east coast beaches for centuries; most of it is from Norfolk and Suffolk but occasionally it is found further north in Lincolnshire and Yorkshire and further south in Essex and even Kent.  

Amber is a fossilised pine resin from ancient forests and the amber found on our east coast is identical to amber from the Baltic area that is some 40 million years old, but how it got here is not known.  

These pieces are from an old collection; they were purchased from the Amber Shop in Southwold many years ago.
