This necklace is made of very rare & scarce Tibetan copal amber beads & very old "Honey" amber round beads. The Tibetan beads have heavy sterling caps that are embossed with figures of animals, plants, & clouds. These are very very expensive beads - very scarce. The color of these beads is also rare to find. This is an entire necklace of beads with silver caps!! It is very beautiful.
