We work with the aim to:
Data from samples that are sent in and confirmed as genuine ambergris, are sent to the Universities and Marine Mammal Conservation Organisations Ambergris Connect collaborate with, in turn contributing to ocean/marine mammal conservation. The data we collect also helps towards research on the origins of this product.
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:
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.
