Faturan, mastics and sudurus
Faturan, mastics and sudurus are chemical attempts to imitate real amber. They deserve a position at your collection because of their antiquity.
They also have beguiling colors and their beads produce enchanting sounds. They are aged between 60 to 120 years. The tradition says they are consisted of amber dust, of frankincense, bakelite, colophony and mastic dust. There is no certitude for their composition, unless we analyze them chemically. Their antiqueness results their value.
The company “EFHANTRO” has collected until 1976 nothing but the best, in faturan, mastics and sudurus at the Arabic world. At that time, they were very rare.
Today the market is stuffed with these so called”old”. So, if the cap fits, wear it!
