Although Amber is most commonly found in the Baltics, it has also been discovered in several other locations around the globe. In keeping with other naming conventions for Amber, where Rumanite is named after its origin of Romania, Simetite which is Sicilian in origin; Burmite is the name given to Amber which is found in Burma.
Although popular with local people, Burmite is often cloudy and therefore hides many of its hidden treasures locked within the gem. Therefore it is normally less expensive than those specimens found in Poland and the Baltics. That said, as many people who collect gemstones and jewellery often like to collect these items based on their origin, at Coloured Rocks we try source gems from a wide variety of countries.
