This is part of an exquisite collection that we will be offering. At Magicnecklace we have been dealing in amber and Chinese antiques for 30 years. All our amber offerings are thoroughly tested. Amber has many different appearances, degrees of polish, hardness, opacity and colors. There are many imitations to amber, but amber can be tested quite easily. The three methods are the static test, the UV light test and the floating test. All amber should pass the static and UV test. Not all amber floats in a heavy saline solution, but all amber is less dense than stone and warmer to the touch.
