These beautiful and extremely unique Amber with Inclusion Pendant Necklaces make for a stunning jewellery option that will be admired by all who see it. Housing a real inclusion would certainly be the main talking point when showing this off. No two pieces of amber will ever be identical which makes these necklaces such a unique & special item for the owner.
Amber Inclusions are unfortunate animals, insects, plants etc. which became entombed in tree resin (not tree sap) millions of years ago. With the inclusion engulfed, the resin slowly hardened through a natural polymerization of the original organic compounds. This hardened material is known as Copal, which preserves the inclusion perfectly. Through time the Copal becomes buried and, over a several million year process, slowly turns into what we know as Amber. Incredibly this process has allowed us to marvel at ancient specimens frozen in time, as if captured only yesterday!
*We would always suggest using a magnifying aid to view your specimen to truly appreciate the inclusions stunning frozen detail.
