5 Ways to Detect Baltic Amber Authenticity

5 Ways to Detect Baltic Amber Authenticity

Baltic Amber is 45 million year old pine tree sap found in Northern Europe around the Baltic Sea. According to scientists it is a fossil pine resin that has achieved a stable state through oxidation. Amber electrifies negatively and it is still alive because its internal metamorphosis is still incomplete.

There are a number of ways that amber is faked. You want to get what you’re paying for, so knowing a little about amber authenticity can save you from a big disappointment.

Here are 5 Ways to Detect Amber Authenticity:

  • If you polish it, Amber won’t shine.
  • Amber doesn’t capture light, instead it will glow with a resinous glow.
  • It will not get sticky as Copal will when you rub it vigorously.
  • Looking beneath the surface, there are no inclusions. Authentic Amber will be clear.
  • You will not see air bubbles in the resin.

*The red family of color, shows its rarity.

 

Fakes passed off as real Amber

  • Copal – is real resin from a tree so in fact it is Amber but the difference is that it has not cured or aged long enough, roughly 1000 to 1 million years old. Smells of sweet resins.
  • Glass – remains cold and fire proof.
  • Fenolic Resin – no smell of a pine tree
  • Celluloid – (A very early plastic) Smells of burnt plastic
  • Modern Plastics – Smells of burnt plastic
