Hi guys! I need some help! LOL. I got this necklace in a huge container of junk Jewelry. I thought it might be bakelite after recently visiting an antique store the other day.

I tried doing some of the tests. I placed it in hot water, pulled it out, and it smells like the frog we dissected in high school biology lab floating in formaldehyde. So, I guess that's a positive. SO, then I tried 409. It did not turn yellow.

My mom recently said that she bought Phosphates or something because companies were removing the "cleaning" ingredients out of their products. WONDERFUL, 30 dollars for a huge thing of Tide, and it has no cleaning agents.

Did this happen with 409 as well?

    Hot pin smell test works too. I agree with Vintagemad, you got a good one.
