Mastic-Amber, old mixture of amber and bakelite, 1900-1920

This is a mixture of amber with bakelite using a method based on bakelite, unknown today. The authentic mastics are identical to amber and you cannot tell the difference easily. The colours and the shades of the mastics are the same as the authentic amber. The name comes from the Arabic word "MISTECA", which means "mastic", since the smell of the beads being played and touched-therefore warmed-reminded that of mastic itself. The last authentic mastics were created around 1940-1950, time when the know-how was lost. Mastics are still created today, but as we can understand, the title is only used euphemistically since they have nothing to do with the original method: no amber is used in the mixture but various resins, and especially bakelite.
