Blue Sumatra Amber - Facet Grade
« on: October 02, 2020, 09:58:56 PM »

Hey Guys, I would like to share this picture of some work with Blue Sumatra Amber. When it comes to Indonesian stones, there is a lot of scepticism about authenticity, mostly due to some dodgy sellers and lack of legitimate research/testing. This is indeed fossil amber, and not copal.

Here is an interesting article from G.I.A: https://www.gia.edu/gems-gemology/summer-2014-liu-color-phenomena-blue-amber

It should be noted that, once faceted, they (mostly) lose their blue hue.

If you have any questions, please feel free to message me.
