IAA Amber Laboratory has been testing and analysing the samples using a non-destructive method, with an in-house FT-IR Nicolet iS10 Spectrometer with an ATR accessory. The spectrometer makes it possible to distinguish various kinds of amber, fossil resins and synthetic resins.
Besides the spectrophotometer, we work with a microscope, magnifying glasses and UV/VIS light.

Every Amber Certificate, issued by IAA Amber Laboratory, provides the confidence, security and credibility to the Consumer that the amber jewelry they purchased represents the quality they were promised.

The test certificates issued by the IAA Amber Laboratory are based on professional knowledge, experience and the necessary analyses and tests performed by IAA Amber experts.
The products are described in accordance with the Classification of Amber Gemstones introduced by the IAA.
