Hello, my Father has found a 4kg lump of ambergris on his local beach in Bournemouth and doesn't know what to do with it. Can someone advise me please. Many thanks, Sarah
We can't ID ambergris here in the Museum, but here are two pages with advice on how to do it yourself:
I have also discovered a similar rock along the beach and was hoping you could tell me if you managed to confirm whether your rock was indeed ambergris and how you did this.
If you feel uncomfortable replying to this post I am more than happy to give you my personal e-mail to message in private.
