This is a gorgeous Strand of Ethiopian Burnt Amber Beads. Each amber bead is unique and has different patterns and variations. The story goes that the tribesmen would sit around the fire discussing community issues while burning designs into these "amber" beads. These amber beads on the market are becoming increasing difficult to find. Research by Angela Fisher (author of Africa Adorned) and others suggests that very little African "amber" is true Baltic amber. Most is probably made in Europe and carved in Africa. Some may be Copal resin ("young amber" from Zanzibar) that is formed into beads, some may be a blend of natural and man made resins, and some may be made from phenolic plastic. These beads are exquisite and and each one different and will be wonderful in all your creative designs.
