Amber is unique in that it has optical features on the surface of the stone, aka fluorescence, and also desirable details on the inside of the stone (inclusions, patterns, etc). Copal is young amber that does not have the same durability. While Amber is hard enough to use in jewelry, Copal is not.
Our Mexican Amber is bought directly from the mine owners, and our Indonesian Amber has been tested in a lab in Tokyo, proving it as genuine Amber and not Copal. This listing uses professional photography that samples our collection.
