What is AGbA™?
Authentic Guaranteed Baltic Amber. If your Baltic amber product is marked by the AGbA™ label and serial number it is genuine Baltic amber. Manufacturers that are certified with AGbA™ have followed our strict guidelines to provide only authentic amber from the Baltic region in Europe. Baltic amber is regarded as the purest and highest quality amber in the world. When you buy AGbA™ you can be confident you are buying genuine quality amber.
Our organisation was formed to remove doubts of authenticity from the minds of purchasers around the world. There is currently wide-spread use of plastics, glass, and copal marketed as Baltic amber and it is the single largest threat to the integrity of the Baltic amber market. We are a highly recognised Baltic amber certification company in Australasia and Europe, and we go well beyond other amber certification companies to provide a mark of authenticity and traceable serial number with every product.
All of our authorised dealers and representatives are available in our list of certified retailers available here. If you have bought an AGbA™ labelled product from a dealer who is not in our list in may be counterfeit. For protection against counterfeit labels we provide a unique serial number with every product which reflects the type of product, style, colour, and manufacturer. If you have an AGbA™ serial number you can check the authenticity on our web site by contacting us here.
