Deep Egg Yolk Amber Resin Beads imported from Kathmandu Nepal Beading/Jewelry Making Supplies Inventory #KN155

The color of these beads is FABULOUS!! They remind of the color of egg yolks from free range chickens....... And the scent they exude when warmed next to your skin is on the verge of intoxicatingor very ripe Apricots....Yes..I've been wearing them strung on a cord...couldn't help myself.....hate to sell them ........intoxicating........warm delicious fragrance.......

The photos show 40 of the 80 beads I have on hand, priced per bead so you can buy as few as one or the whole lot if you so desire. I acquired them as amber resin, I have no doubt they are indeed reconstituted amber with a hardening agent added which makes them VERY durable. The warm sweet scent is a dead giveaway for me.

------------------------------------->>>>>IMPORTANT!!!<<<<<----------------------------------------

If you're purchasing numerous beads MESSAGE ME for an accurate shipping fee before paying as these will all fit in one small flat rate priority box that would be $6.50/box plus any insurance fees over a $50.00 value. And be sure to click on the QUANTITY of beads you wish to purchase in the box directly below the price.

***********************************************************************************************************************

These amber resin beads are perfect for your beading projects, the strand would make a fabulous statement necklace or one bead can be put on your favorite cord!

Please refer to the photos as they are an important element of the description.

Details:
The beads varya bit in size and range from approximately 16mm -18mm from hole to hole and 22mm to 25mm in diameter.

The weight per bead varies as well from approximately 9+gms to almost 11gms per bead

The approximate hole size is 2mm

The shape of the beads: The beads have a flattened shape on the hole sides so they sit nicely next to each other...and the overall shape is ever so slightly rectangular with well rounded corners.



The purchase of these beads helps to support families from Tibet and Nepal who have been suppressed by the Chinese military for so long. I do what I can to acquire old pieces from Tibetan and Nepalese women who are struggling to support their children.

My Fair Trade supplier "on the ground" acquires these beads directly from the people who craft Tibetan jewelry so there are NO sweat shops involved taking advantage of these people who are working hard to earn a fair wage and support their families.

I did the standard "static test" with these beads,rubbing them briskly for a few seconds on a piece of wool fabric and then holding the beads over a small piece of tissue paper and the beads immediately "attracted" the piece of paper. Amber holds a static charge whereas plastic beads do not. A hot needle test produced an organic woodsy smell as opposed to the acrid smell of melting plastic. The beads are also warm to the touch, another sign of amber.

I have a note posted on my Facebook Etsy page that goes into some detail about amber and how to identify it. The link is below if you're interested in reading it. I'm not a scientist and don't have the skills to identify beyond a shadow of a doubt as to whether this strand of beads is made of reconstituted amber or a mixture of amber and other hardening substances.

My Fair Trade vendor/supplier that I've dealt with since 2007 referred to these as Amber Resin so I am listing them just as they were sold to me.

I do know the beads passed the standard tests. I've searched all through Etsy and found beads identical to this strand, and saw beads exactly like these selling anywhere from $30.00 to $60.00 PER bead.

Mystical Properties:
Because amber, unlike other gemstones, is warm to the touch and often contains insect fragments, it was thought to possess life. It was sacred to worshippers of the Mother Goddess in classical times, as it was believed to contain the very essence of life itself - the animating principle.

Due to the fact that amber is a fossil, it has associations with time, cycles and longevity. As it once was a living substance, it is related to Akasha. This is what is commonly called "The Fifth Element", which governs and binds together earth, air, fire and water, and in a sense it is the ultimate source of those elements. Akasha is also symbolic of life and living things; plants, animals and humans alike.

All of these mysterious properties and associations make amber one of the most widely used and prized magical substances of all times and places on Earth.

Yellow/Gold/Orange amber is said to enhance the beauty of the wearer. It is used to tap into the power of the Sun, and is good for success, abundance, healing, vitality and joy. It brings the energies of patience, protection, psychic shielding, romantic love, sensuality, purification, balance, healing and calmness to those who wear or carry it. It is considered a good luck charm for marriage.

Healing Properties:

A powerful stone for manifestation, amber is also used for healing of the physical body as well. For over 7,000 years it has been used to stimulate the metabolism and treat skin ailments caused by a metabolic imbalance.
Because of it's warmth it is used also in the treatment of asthma and allergic respiratory problems. Generally wearing amber in a necklace is the most effective for this ailment.

Amber carries a negative electrical energy charge and therefore is good to draw power and energy into its bearer. Amber gives a soothing, light energy that is both calming and energizing at the same time. It can help manifest desires and heighten intellectual abilities, clarity of thought, and wisdom. It cleanses its environment by drawing out negativity, and relieves physical pain the same way.

Really nice Amber Resin. From here, it not only looks nice, but to me...it feels good too. The prices are right, because you know that you are getting a quality item. Better than buying cheap and throwing away some or even all of it. Getting it right the first time...saves time and money. :)
