Hello subscribers,

I have obtained what may be an ambergris boulder washed up on a South Florida beach. We've been running a few chemical tests to try and confirm if it is actually ambergris. Would anyone have, or know where, a piece of verified jetsam ambergris is (free floating and not directly from a sperm whale)  to which we could compare our spectral analysis?

Many thanks,

Amy C. Hirons
