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 typically 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 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.

Frequently asked questions and delivery information


How do we grade stones?

There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.

 

How does our ordering and delivery process work?

You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.

I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.

 

How do international orders work?

After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.

 

I’d like to return my order for a refund.

No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.

 

What payment methods do you accept?

I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.

    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.
