It's 49 beads, 25 inches, and 62 grams of genuine copal which is the term for young, unripened amber. A long-established standard has been that ambers are at least ten million years old and any resins less than that are considered to be copal. What's a few million years when you've got beads that are richly beautiful like these old organic gems?
The beads are big in the center...15mm. They graduate in size up to about 10mm near the copal screw clasp which blends right in.
The copal amber color is the much-coveted butterscotch and the beads are semi-translucent and well matched.
This necklace is in excellent vintage condition. Circa 1920s.
