Dealer Spotlight: Amber Fortuna

Amber Fortuna is a unique specialist dealer based within Grays, who deals exclusively in the rarest and finest quality Baltic Amber.

The Baltic region is home to the largest known deposit of amber anywhere in the entire world. Named ‘Baltic Amber’ or ‘Succanite’, this form of resin dates from 44 million years ago (the Eocene epoch) and it has been estimated by scientific study that this vast forest may have created more than 100,000 tons of amber. 

Amber Fortuna is an expert in the geological properties, as well as the cultural associations, of genuine Baltic amber. Baltic amber is neither a mineral nor a gemstone, but rather a form of tree resin, which has been recognised throughout cultures in Eastern Europe for many centuries for its supposed healing properties. 

Whether or not you buy in to the legend of healing associated with the mineral, anyone can be attracted by the hundreds of different shades of brown, red, yellow and orange which naturally occur in this charismatic, organic substance. 

Amber Fortuna offers a wide range of ornamental objects and jewellery in every colour permutation imaginable. We've picked out a few of our favourites below:
