Amber-like resin beads have the same look and feel as genuine amber, at a fraction of the cost. Extremely lightweight, the resin beads have a similar fiery medium red to dark red glow with golden flecks gleaming from within the bead.
Genuine amber is a multi-million-year-old fossilized plant resin and is believed to be one of the first gem-like materials ever used for personal adornment. Colors, shapes and sizes may vary in each lot.
