About the large collection of baby teething necklace beads shown here.
Polished – Tumbled or polished until the surface is smooth and shiny.
Burnished – either tumbled a short time just until the bead is shaped or tumble polished and then tumbled again to give the surface a matt appearance. Note that many people call these raw. They are not raw. Raw means no changing of the surface or shaping. These are shaped.
Colors – Note that green and cherry are not natural colors. These colors are made by heating and/or autoclaving Baltic Amber. It short, those two color beads are treated. Such treatment does not change the medicinal properties of the beads.

Beads Per 100 grams
The beads are formed by tumbling or polishing. As such, the beads are random shaped – even within a given shape category. And they will vary in size and weight. The result is that bead counts will vary from bead SKU to bead SKU. We try to give an estimated number of beads within a usable range. The number is at best a best guess based on our compilation and analysis of random bead counts.
