Master hand carving of high quality with minute attention to detail.
High pressure water-carved from the whole piece of amber, please do not mix up with modified ambers - this is NOT modified, it is a whole piece of Sumatra Amber. 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.

Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Nog niets aangekomen. Tracing is gestopt.Tracking just shows it is in transit having left Jakarta. Parcel being 15 kilo weight with free shipping could not have been posted by air - air price would have been in the region of USD 700. So this is ground/sea shipping. Please give it some more time. Alternatively I can ask the exact location in the Central posr office here if you want me to do so.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Totally fake ....he sold plastic for ambar.This is not even worth answering. I asked the Buyer how he came to this conclusion? UV? Floating in fresh water? Not becoming electrostatic after rubbing? No answer. Well, my experience shows that statistically one in a hundred buyers need to be like that. And here he comes.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Not import duties, but the costs DHL charges for customs clearance are considerably higher than with EMS Express / Post Aruba. The back is damaged and Buddha have not color-effects as written. Thanks.Shipping was exactly as stated in listing - by EMS Indonesia, tracking No proves that. DHL are just their partner in some countries. Import tax does not depend on the courrier and we clearly stated in the listing that it has to be paid by the Buyer, if any. For the damage we didn’t understand.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Received in careful wrapping and amber is beautiful, same as described.
But I'm unable to have the "see thru " effect when placed under normal lighting.
Any advice is appreciated.
