Skhab, sometimes known as “black amber” is a compound resin hand made into bead shapes or pressed into molds to make beads and amulets. The resin was mixed with spices like clover, rose essence or neroli and therefore the beads were originally infused with a fragrant smell. The jewellery items created were often given to brides as wedding gifts.

It appears that this material is also called "pČte amber".
