  • Baltic amber The Baltic region is home to the largest known deposit of amber, called Baltic amber, with about 80% of the world's known amber found here. It dates from between 35 to 40 million years ago (Eocene Early Oligocene). The term Baltic amber is generic, so amber from the Bitterfeld mines in Germany (which is only 20 million years old) goes under the same name. Because Baltic amber contains about 8% succinic acid, it is also termed Succinite.

Over the centuries, not only crosses, but giant crucifixes, carvings of Lithuanian patriots, statues of the Virgin Mary and thousands of tiny effigies and rosaries have been brought here by Catholic pilgrims. The number of crosses is unknown, but estimates put it at about 50,000.
