Beautiful red-blue amber necklace from Sumatra, entirely natural and UV-reactive.
I assure you that this necklace is 100% natural and has not undergone any other treatment!

This red-blue variety is an unusual colour, probably caused by the presence of aromatic substances, the red, slightly blueish colour is blueish on a black surface and blueish red in sunlight, see photos.

Turns blue under a UV-lamp due to fluorescence.

Salt water test carried out, see photos.

What makes this amber necklace rare is that it has a wonderful combination of transparency, mixed red-blue effect, inclusions and a blueish superficial tint.

According to the statistics.

Amber is a mineral which represents health, happiness and the sun. It has been known to humanity since ancient times.

In ancient times, amber was considered to be the protector against the evil spirits.


Even today amber has a lot of connotations: it treats depression, gives the owner self-confidence, and brings balance into someone's mood.



Amber alleviates the pain when it's worn on the skin during the day; as it warms up to the natural body temperature, the amber jewellery releases healing oils with succinic acid, which are then absorbed by the skin and subsequently enter the blood stream.

Amber is not a stone so it feels warm to the skin, as well as very comfortable and light to wear.


In good condition!

Will be sent with track and trace, including insurance.

Outside Europe with a customs clearance form.

I have no influence over delays in delivery, so please give it at least two weeks (business days); if you haven't received it by then, please contact us, before giving negative/neutral feedback, and we will find a solution.

Good luck bidding.

    I think this buyer has no knowledge of zebra amber, they always have natural narrow stripes / crack that is a natural process and not my fault!

    Jammer voor het Neutrale feedback voor iets waar ik niets aan kon doen omdat het 100%zorgvuldig verpakt was ( ook volgens u ) en met grote letters breekbaar erop. DHL bezorgdienst is de schuldige geeft er blijkbaar niets om als er breekbaar opstaat.
    Hoe bezorgers het voor elkaar krijgt om het gebroken af te leveren, schande. Mijn excuus daarvoor!

    Leugens!!
    Koper had spijt van de € 700, 00 excl en wilde van de koop af waardoor hij iets moest gaan verzinnen, wel voor € 160,00 daar heb ik niet op gereageert.Uit coulane heb ik € 75,00 terug betaald! Heeft het dispuut dan ook verloren vandaar zijn rancune. Veilingmeesters waren het met mij eens!

    Wapenschild zag er goed uit, maar buitengewoon slecht / bijna ongeinteresseerd verpakt.Punten van het schild staken aan beide kanten uit de verpakking vandaan.En dat voor een toch wel prijzig object.

    Fijn dat het item u bevalt dat is waar het omgaat en tenminste positief.

    Maar Zou u zo vriendelijk willen zijn om een foto van de slechte verpakking door te geven.
    Ik kan het niet geloven
    want degene die altijd alles voor mij inpakt is daar zeer precies in, leest u de beoordelingen maar eens. Als het zo slecht ingepakt was had ik u niet gevraagd om een beoordeling te geven.
    Het zou DOOR het VERVOER gebeurt MOETEN zijn!!!
    De inpakker is echt een perfectionist.
    Dit zal hem pijn doen als ik dit doorgeef!!
