Burmite Gemstone

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.
