Amber Imbedded in Limestone





Geology, Palaeontology

    Comments: 'Having observed [...] that Count Dunin Borkowsky [sic] had announced his having discovered amber imbedded in sandstone, I think it may not be uninteresting to state an analogous observation which was made about the end of year 1813, on the seashore, in the immediate neighbourhood of Santander' (483–84). Relates that he or she found there 'a considerable mass of yellow amber, firmly embedded in the limestone' (484).
