Is Amber the New GOLD? How to Test and Identify Amber

I love amber because it is so easy for an average person to misidentify it as plastic! Some amber necklaces sell for hundreds and even thousands of dollars so taking the time to learn these simple tests to identify Amber can be valuable information.

Now there are more advance tests that only a laboratory can do, but honestly unless you come across an extremely rare piece with an insect in it, which would increase its value to thousands of dollars. I personally would not invest the time or money to have advance tests done.

These tests are more then sufficient to sell confidently on Ebay. Especially since (Most of the time) I'm usually only spending 50 cents or less for my pieces when I buy in bulk.
