|The El Soplao Cave in Cantabria|
The largest find of amber in Spain has been found in the El Soplao cave in Cantabria, which has been described as a world geological treasure.
Much of the amber which has come to light contains insects in its interior and dates from some 110 million years ago.
Researchers from the Spanish Geological and Mining Institute, which is part of the Ministry for Science and Innovation, think the new find could be the most important in Europe.
Although there have been similar finds of amber in other parts of Spain, none are said to have as much amber nor as many trapped insects.
