Is this genuine amber? We're 95% sure it is but it might have some material mixed in to create the look of the natural 'stuff' swept up with the tree resin that creates the amber. These inclusions were everything from pine needles to bugs to water/air bubbles.

As best as our tests and limited expertise go, this seems to be a good amber necklace.

It measures 18 inches around by 1 1/8 inches wide at center beads. It weighs 33.4 grams. The screw barrel clasp is amber, coming up strong in our UV light test.

The color is outstanding...more translucent with the lower beads which are flatter and more see-through. The thicker oval shaped beads are the same rich honey color as the other beads but look redder because of their density.

Amber has a fascinating history of "medicinal" applications which may only be folklore. The Greek physician Hippocrates, who lived around 460–377 B.C. and is often called the father of medicine, used a mixture of crushed amber and honey to treat "dimming eyesight." And the German religious reformer Martin Luther (1483–1546) carried amber for protection against kidney stones. As a tree resin in its semi-solid form it would act as a defense response for the plant's immune system. So maybe it does something similar for humans. We can always use some extra 'defense response'.

Necklace is in excellent vintage condition.
