AMBRA GRISEA

Submitted by on October 23, 2012 – 12:49 pmNo Comment

Of doubtful origin, for years on the borderland as to its true classification, but probably a nosode or morbid product found in the belly of the sperm-whale, the Physeter Macrosephalous.

It is often found floating upon the sea or thrown upon the shore of the Baltic, or on the coast of Madagascar or Sumatra.

But, perhaps the best specimens are those which whalers cut out and are to be found in Boston and other whaling ports.

It has many characteristics of intestinal or biliary concretions and has been considered to be of hepatic origin, probably a fatty excretion from its gall bladder.

It was introduced by Hahnemann in 1827 ; proved by him and his friend, Count de Gersdorf, who personally obtained nearly one-half of the symptoms.

The so-called Oil of Amber (used by Dr. Holcombe in hiccough) is Oleum Succinum, and should not be confounded with Ambergris.
