Authentic round shaped translucent honey colored Baltic amazing spangled Amber beads. These are very large beads. Some of the beads have some inclusions. These types of inclusions are known as “spangles” and are created when cloudy Amber is heated in vegetable oil. This is a very old type of treatment and such spangles are desirable. Almost all “spangled” Amber originates from the Baltic
These are natural antique amber not to be confused with the many fakes on the market, like resin (immature amber), copal, Bakelite........ The difference between amber and copal is the time it took nature to make them. We're talking about millions of years for amber and thousands for copal. Copal is softer, smells fresher when burned but it is still extremely desirable and collectible.
