Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.Joli pendentif hélas l'ambre bleue du sujet comme sur la photo n'apparait pas.. Couleur plutot noiratre pourquoi ? Les autres couleurs elles sont réelles et superbes... Un peu decu doncBlue 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.
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.

Thanks !It has been shipped in time with tracking No RR047734344ID supplied to the lsting, But Indonesia Post sometimes is a bit funny, so, please, give it some more time.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.LA COLLANA NON è DI BUONA FATTURA. è UNA RIPRODUZIONE ATTUALE DI SCARSA FATTURA E DI PESSIMA QUALITà. IL VENDITORE NON RISPONDE ALLE EMAIL PER CHIARIRE. I TESCHI SONO FATTI MOLTO MALE!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.
Please note: some elements on this page have been translated automatically.为什么我只能给好评 中下都发不了 为什么啊 什么平台啊给个中评吧东西到了 还不确定是不是琥珀 在盐水里票 在淡水里也票啊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.
