Amber Washed Up On Beaches of Kaliningrad

Heavy storm on the coast of the Baltic sea washed up a large amount of amber. Dressed up in wetsuits and standing in freezing water as far as 20-30 meters from the shore, locals were using large nets to catch the larger pieces of valuable stone.

Those, who were not into getting wet, were sipping through garbage and dirt on beaches. They were in for the smaller prey: amber – the size of a match head. In five minutes of hard work you could collect a handful of the shining “sun stone”.
