Fake Amber vs. Real Amber

How to tell fake amber from real amber with examples and testing procedures.

In this page we give you what amounts to an introduction to what is real amber versus fake amber.

Fake Amber is sold not only to those tourists who have no idea what Amber really is, but also to those people who consider themselves Amber experts. It is the Amber experts that take the heaviest losses because they tend to avoid that she imitations and buy instead the expensive imitations.

The first step in protecting yourself against Amber imitations is to understand the history of the manufacture and sale of fake Amber products. We recommend strongly that you read this book that is published under the auspices of the International Amber Association. The book is called Gujide To Amber Imitations and can be purchased at this link for the price of $2.95. That is a small amount of money for a great amount of information that can save you a lot more money. Once again here is the link. "Guide To Amber Imitations."

The International Amber Association, Gdansk Poland will help you through the services it provides at its Amber laboratory and it will also help you by giving you personal help if you contact them with your questions. Here is the link to the Amber Association Gdansk Poland.

Often the first indicator of fraudulent Amber is the price. Raw Amber or finished Amber that sells below the market price is very likely fake.

The market is what the market is. Amber is in high demand and people who have pure natural Baltic Amber do not compete on price. They set their brand based on quality and they do not discount just to make sales.

The reality is that it is the customers who are competing to get quality Amber. So if you see a low-priced, that is a warning flag.

The video in this page shows you some information about the Amber laboratory in Gdansk Poland and gives you many views of fraudulent Amber.

The point not emphasized in that video, is that the common tests of using a black light, floating the Amber, smelling the Amber, and other such simple tests, are at best indicators. They are unreliable. The only way you can be sure is to subject the product to an IRS examination offered by the Amber laboratory.

We buy and sell Amber every day. We have, like so many other professionals who do the same as we do, come to recognize that the only way that we can be assured that we are probably getting pure Baltic Amber, is to buy from suppliers who have within Poland a recognized reputation for dealing only with pure natural Baltic Amber .

If you are interested in buying Amber and silver jewelry, the Amber Association provides a special list of manufacturers that they have approved. You can get that here. Amber And Silver Jewelry Catalogs

Raw Amber sales are not overseen by the Amber Association so you are more reliant on the reputation of the seller.

Additionally, some Amber and silver jewelry suppliers rely rather on their own reputation and brand.

So the final word is, know your seller

We must emphasize that it is a mere introduction. The best information is contained the the booklet "Guide To Amber Immitations" that is published under the auspices of the International Amber Association, Gdansk, Poland. For the book, go to "Guide To Amber Imitations."
