This string of amber necklace features an array of beautiful honey amber beads, and was hand-crafted and imported from Russia. This classic necklace features round beads which measure approximately 7/16" in diameter. The necklace features a great display of natural inclusions. Amber is actually fossilized tree resin, millions, and millions of years old. When this resin was first formed, occasionally bits of organic matter, such as tree bark, or plant life, get trapped inside of it. When the resin turns into amber these inclusions are perfectly preserved and suspended in a beautiful prison of amber. These inclusions help refract light to give the amber an even more alluring glow.
