You will love this amber if you acquire it, as do all those who have been lucky enough to have an African amber necklace, and you will want to wear it non stop. The colours mix very well in any woman's daily wardrobe, making it easy to wear almost every day. 
Amber is such a fascinating thing, and so beautiful to see and touch. 
WizNek offers vintage pieces of ‘African Amber’  or 'Copal Amber', found on travels to Africa, that are usually bakelite amber,
an interesting article on African amber was written by Rosanna Falabella.
Rosanna Falabella research presentation covered the history of bakelite and information that she has researched about imitation amber beads made for and traded to Africa. 1909 was the patent date for Leo Baekeland’s discovery of a man-made material that looks and feels like amber, but does not have the downfalls of that element: the element is harder than amber, is more durable, and doesn’t craze* with age or heat.
