Contains no substitute, no adhesives, no synthetic additives or the like. 100% untreated amber.Ordered on special commission from the raw material hand-picked by myself from the old stocks.In this particular one – when put against the light source – colour plays from orange – to violet/bluish/cognac.This type of Sumatra Amber is no longer available as raw material (Sumatra coal mines of Bukit Barisan mountains where sourced are now exhausted – check it online).NOT pressed, NOT modified, NOT copal (copal does not fluoresce). See our Catawiki feedback for our Amber. No flash/filters used when taking pix.US Gemmological institute of America’ study revealed the colours of the Sumatran Ambers are the result of surface fluorescence stimulated by UV light. Study of the origins concluded Sumatran ambers were produced by the extinct tree species Hymenaea Protera 20 to 40 million years ago.Import taxes and duties (if any) to be paid by the Buyer.
