The Story of Imitation African Amber

Are those beads really plastic? Many vintage "African amber” or "copal amber" are actually made of Bakelite. Dr. Rosanna Falabella will cover the history of imitation amber and how it was traded to Africa. Sponsored by the Bead Society of Orange County, an affiliate council of the Bowers Museum.
