This particular Indonesian Amber is sometimes referred to as "blue amber". Indeed in bright sunlight, especially when the sun rays are falling at the beads at an angle, there is a clear blue tint visible. This hint of blue is visible under a variety of natural light conditions, although this is usually a fleeting effect. In most natural light conditions the color of the beads is a range of honey yellow to dark wine red. But the blue effect is there, and it is especially pronounced in UV light. One of the photos, the one showing intense blue, is taken under UV light,

These natural amber beads are semi-transparent, with inclusions and darker spots. There are occasional irregularities on the smooth surface of the beads. These inclusions and irregularities are natural and should be expected. Some can be seen in the photos and some are not. These irregularities only emphasize the beauty of the natural amber.
