First-Ever Ambergris Fossils Found in Italy

2 posts in this topic

Dr Paola Sassi from the University of Perugia’s Department of Chemistry with colleagues found more than 25 large structures over an area of 1,200 square meters at the Allerona site in western Umbria.

The structures, measuring 30 to 60 cm high and 60 to 120 cm wide, are calcium carbonate-rich deposits of different types and shapes emerging as cones from the clayey sediment. Their color varies from yellowish to red or whitish to light gray.

The paleontologists identified these 1.75-million-year-old structures as fossilized ambergris.
