Baltic Amber is a fosilized tree resin & comes in a variety of colours and shapes. Baltic Amber has been used for thousands of years as a healing agent, jewelry and decoration. Baltic Amber contains 3-8% succinic acid, which is believed to help with pain while wearing it. Succinic acid is a natural analgeisic and healing agent.
Our amber pieces are hand made by our team of artisans in Lithuania. All sizes are approximate and have up to a 1 inch variance with necklaces and 1/2 inch variance with bracelets. They all have smooth rounded edges and have many variations within their own category - no two beads are alike (colour, shape and size)!
What size to order:
Take a string and place it around your neck, wrist or ankle loosely and where you would like to wear it. Mark the string, place it next to a ruler or tape measure and voila ~ that is your size! Find the size that is closest to what you would like on your local retailer's website or walk on in, let them know your size and place your order.
Amber comes in many different colours and shades and their names help explain how light or dark they are from gold to molasses! There are many variations within each colour and don't forget to look for specks of uniqueness throughout!
What is Raw Amber?:
All of our amber is raw amber, in it's natural state. When you see us describe a necklace or bracelet as 'raw', it means that it has a matte finish. The rest of our amber has been polished to shine by tumbling in a barrel with wood chips! If you purchase a raw piece, it will end up looking polished over time.
