This is a magnificent necklace of graduated hand shaped pieces of Chiapas amber. The clasp and the heavy gauge beads are sterling silver.
The weight is 736g. This is an enormous amount of very high quality amber and extraordinarily large pieces. One piece has pyrite embedded in it. Very unusual. Unless new veins of amber are discovered I believe that amber of this size will not be available in the near future.
Mexican amber is among the rarest and highest qualities of amber in the world. The amber is of a long extinct species of tree and is probably about 25 million years old.
The total length of the necklace is 35.5"
