Baltic Amber Pendant

Baltic Amber pendant tastefully set in sterling silver. 

Chain not included.

Amber is a fossilized resin from ancient trees. True gemstone amber ranges in age from one million to three million years old. Younger amber that has not undergone polymerization will decompose in contact with organic solvents. Older amber becomes brittle and unfit for use in jewelry. Amber can range in color from pale yellow to dark orange and often contains inclusions of ancient insects who got stuck when the resin was in liquid form.

 Amber can be found in many different colors. More than half of the world’s amber is in the range of yellow to gold. A highly sought after hue of rich golden brown is known as cognac amber and is generally found in the Baltic region. Rare green amber gets its color from mixing with decaying plant matter during its development.  

Amber’s pain relieving properties are attributed to its content of succinic acid, which is released when the amber is heated to body temperature through human contact. Amber teething necklaces have traditionally been used to relieve baby’s discomfort. Additionally, amber carries a gentle healing energy that draws away negativity and is balancing and calming to the wearer.
