The intensity of the color is its marked brilliance. Only this could be created from nature!
Amber- like Jet -is a product of organic matter that has been fossilized and oxidized over many years . Amber is created from pine resin. My hunch is that this necklace is a style of amber called ‘egg yolk amber’ named for its deep yellow-orange color. Although first bought as a ‘very fine glass’, my research has led me to find many other necklaces like this one circa 1950’s.
Each bead is separated by a knot that connects a strand of beads 17″ at the longest outer strand and 16″ on the inner strand. It is joined with a unique interlocking 1/2″ clasp. The color of the beads- although outwardly appearing uniformed, have very slight inclusions which support the hunch that these are organic amber. These were a treat to find.
VERY GOOD to EXCELLENT condition.
