Special Notes

  • Much of the amber around is either resin, or resin with a sprig of amber inside - it is more correctly called synthetic amber or amberlite - see Special Notes below for how to detect.
  • Amber is often heat treated to improve clarity but it bursts air bubbles which form disks, see image below:

Special Notes

Amberlite can be determined by the following:

  • is formed into geometrics pyramids, spheres etc - too expensive to do this with the real thing;
  • has a very light plastic feel; and
  • is a cheap price.
  • Amberlite is said to have shavings of amber within it.
