"What is gutta percha ?
Gutta Percha is a rubber-like gum made of the resin derived from trees in Southeast Asia, mainly Malaysia. Like its synthetic cousin, vulcanite, it is brownish-black in appearance (but tended to hold its black matte color over time better) and is molded rather than carved—so, "sometimes you can detect mold lines, with the eye or a loupe," Stockhammer notes. It will give off an acrid, rubber smell when rubbed briskly. Highly flexible yet durable, it was first used in the 1840s for jewelry."
