Old Baltic Amber and Amazonite Necklace
Striking amber and amazonite necklace comprised of ancient beads that complement each other beautifully. It has 19 pieces of baltic amber beads (UV light & saline tested) weighing 23.2 g, and 29 pieces of ancient bluish green opaque amazonite. The necklace is completed with 4 phenolic trade beads. A stunning necklace, purchased in Morocco.
Please note: The amber is genuine, not faux amber or phenolic resin – this is genuine Baltic amber in various warm shades that was used for trading in Africa. It has been tested. Due to the nature of amber, the pieces are not uniform in size and exhibit natural imperfections as you would expect. These authenticate the amber and add to its charm.
