“connecting the market for your convenience”

Sell Ambergris

If you are looking to sell ambergris, Ambergris Connect can either buy (depending on your logistics/location) or connect you with an appropriate buyer.

Ambergris Connect will respond to your enquiry within 48 hours.

We work with the aim to:

  • Provide any important information about ambergris and/or the way the ambergris market works so that the buyer stays informed and ‘in the loop’ throughout.

Initial price estimates for ambergris cannot be provided until after a full review. Be aware that in some cases this may require a full inspection of the piece conducted in person.

Things to be aware of when selling your ambergris:

  • Most (if not all) ambergris finds do contain water and only an expert can estimate how much a piece may be holding - most finds will contain up to 30% water retention.
  • If your find contains sand, we would need to fully inspect the piece (in person) to understand how much weight this may add.

When washed up on the beach, ambergris can sit unfound for months/years at a time. In some cases ambergris may appear porous; this is generally due to sand insects that eat into it (this is how sand filters into the piece - potentially contaminating it!)Storing your ambergris in plastic may also affect the price of your find, so never keep in plastic. Finally, always keep you find at room temperature.

Ambergris comes in a number of different forms, and only an expert can help you to understand the quality of your find. Never use media based information when trying to understand the value of ambergris, as all reported finds featured on the internet or in magazines/newspapers are inaccurately reported, and in most cases were never ambergris to begin with.
