I have two black bracelets, with clear stones, some of the stones are missing, however, not sure if they are plastic or bakelite ? they are not very heavy.

How do I determine which material it is made of ?

    Bakelite usually feels heavy and clunky. But rub it with your thumb really well and Bakelite will give off a formaldehyde smell. You can also use Formula 409 cleaner on a qtip and rub the inner part of the bangle and if it turns yellowish it`s Bakelite.
