The “legendary” definition of FATURAN sometimes referred to as Amber Faturan is as follows, a mixture of natural amber, resins and incense. The technique of sticking together the shavings of amber together with a mixture of secret natural resins and incense to turn it into a solid material is unknown until today. This method was invented by an Arab named Faturan in the 19th century some even go as far as the 17th century, and that material carried his name ever since.

Catalin substance that was first produced in the United States in 1927. It is likened to amber due to some of its properties. Catalin is similar to Amber bakelite (sikma kehribar) as it is also a new formaldehyde product. Catalin is a heat resistant substance. It has also been used in the production of household items, trinkets, cabinet and knife handles and also various other ornaments. When heated, they emit a phenolic odour. This material is also used in making prayer beads.
