Golling Amber (Roßfeld Fm., 132.9-129.4 Ma)


Partial nodule of translucent amber from a now-inaccessible site near Golling an der Salzach, Salzburg, Austria; specimen weighs 2.5g and measures 23x22x8mm. This piece has a thin layer of matrix (contributing to a slight increase in weight), and despite having smaller dimensions, it weighs the same as the larger, similarly-shaped Golling amber specimen from a separate entry. Amber from the Roßfeld (Rossfeld) Formation is dated to be early cretaceous (Hauterivian) in age.
