    Blue colour seen under direct sunlight as stated in the listing, and this is exactly what makes it unusual - different colours under different light conditions. Please put it under the direct sunlight and (hopefully) you will correct the feedback.

  • Very pleased with the amber, & Oleg was very helpful as the piece took over 3 weeks to arrive after posting date.
    The piece was posted in Indonesia so bear this in mind.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.
    Regards, Tai

    Response by seller
    I do not quite understand what the Buyer is saying and meaning by "reproduction". This was the title of the lot "21st century - Indonesia - bovine bone - 20 small skulls". Quality of carving clearly seen on 17 (!) pictures including close-ups and respectively 59.00 euros was the hammer. Catawiki messages clearly show: no email was ever sent to me or would you please forward the copy of your email to which I didn't respond? Very unfair feedback, but nevertheless I can refund the full amount including postage both ways upon return of the item. I can do it PayPal or otherwise. Oleg.

    White amber is formed by the fusion of matrix matter and pure relic resins. And that is what makes it interesting. Depending on the amount of matrix in the amber - some white ambers float in salt water, some not.
  • Lovely piece of carved amber. Timely delivery from the UK to the US.
