Amber Bead Classifications

We sell four categories of amber beads. Chips, Craft Beads And Calibrated Beads. Each of the categories is discussed below.

Chips

Raw

Raw chips are available in various sizes. They are sorted by size. The color is natural raw Amber color just as it comes from the stones. They can be drilled and they can be strung.

Processed

For those who wish a chip but a chip that has been polished to take off the edges, we can supply those also. These can be drilled. There are more color opportunities here in that they can be heated to make them cherry colored and some candy autoclaved to be clarified.

 

Craft Beads

Tumble Burnished

These beads are generally used in baby teething necklaces and other craft purposes. They are sizes run from about 4 to 8 mm. The shape is generally a Baroque shape.

They are made from raw natural Baltic Amber and tumble polished only long enough to shape them. They are not finally polished and have no shine.

Many people call these raw beads. They are not raw because they are processed.

Tumble Polished

These beads of the beads that are generally used in baby teething necklaces. They are tumbled polished pieces of raw natural Baltic Amber. They are the Tumblel burnished beads mentioned above but just polished longer.

 

Calibrated Beads

 

Hand Carved

Products with hand carved beads are top quality. Each bead is hand carved from a single nugget of raw, natural Baltic amber. They are offered only in natural white.

Bead sizes are available 6 mm and up. However, bead sizes 12 mm and greater are not recommeded due to the nature of amber. Making beads 12 mm and greater is very expensive. If you want bead sizes 12 mm and greater, we stongly recommend using formed beads.
