#LeadedJewelry: Vintage Faux Pearls

37,287 ppm Arsenic.
307 ppm Cadmium.
Greater than 10% (>100,000) ppm lead.
Tested with an XRF.
Items intended for children are required by current legislation to be under 90 ppm lead. Jewelry intended for adults is not regulated for total lead content – especially antique / vintage jewelry (which may be deteriorating/ chalking into the environment). These glass pearls also tested positive with a LeadCheck Swab test.
