Raw Amber pieces from the Baltic

Raw Amber pieces from the Baltic - we primarily buy from Poland and Lithuania, sometimes Russia.

Our most common stock is rough Amber in packets of 10 grams - this equates to between five and eight pieces for the ten gram packet.

Our grading system for this Amber is simple - grade C pieces are a very low quality; grade B pieces are included, cracked, etc but recognisable as orange Amber. Grade A pieces have less inclusions, and may be usable for pendants, rings, earrings, etc. Jewellery grade pieces - well, even I could cut a good cabochon from them. As few inclusions as possible, and good colours.

We do have some slightly larger pieces:

  • Grade C - #1 - 43x34x26MM, 18 grams approx.
  • Grade C - #2 - 42x40x15MM, 16 grams approx.
  • Grade B - #1 - 39.3x28x12MM, 7.3 grams approx.
  • Grade B - #2 - 37x30x21.5MM, 9 grams approx.

 

We do also sell some larger and higher quality pieces, which allows you to select your own - see our 'Baltic Amber display pieces' page.

Check out our YouTube video for a better idea of the quality of the grade B pieces we sell.

We can supply larger quantities of raw amber - please feel free to contact us.

This type of raw Amber is sometimes known as rough amber, or Baltic Amber, due to the location it is found in.

    I received 60 Grams (2 x 30g packets) today and I’m very pleased with them. Although most I ended up with I doubt would be large or clear enough for anything other than raw beads, I am no expert. All I know is they are perfect for the Viking gemwork display I have in mind. Oddly, I also seemed to have received a piece of the budget Amber on top of this (Possibly Dominican? Also, Probably The same one pictured on the Amber page by the looks of it!) which would probably be far more suitable for cabochon work or the like due to its size and clarity.

    Still, absolutely brilliant for the price. Highly recommended for collectors.
