What is Baltic Amber?
Baltic Amber is a fossilized tree resin and comes in a variety of shapes and colours. Baltic Amber is made for wearing (not chewing or ingestion). Amber contains succinic acid, a natural analgesic and healing agent. Amber will warm against your body and the succinic acid will be absorbed through your skin helping with pain relief.
Used for centuries, Baltic Amber has been used for a variety of ailments from teething pain to arthritis. Scientific research has shown that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body. It improves immunity and the balance of acids when absorbed into the bloodstream, it stimulates the thyroid glands to help reduce drooling and soothe inflammed areas. Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are recognised by allopathic medicine as a natural analgesic (pain reliever), which can help to relieve many painful conditions.
Material: Natural 100% authentic Baltic Amber is used to make our products.
Baltic Amber Facts:
A natural analgesic (pain reliever).
Amber is a fossilized resin, not a stone. It is therefore warm to the touch, as well as very comfortable and light to wear.
Wearing Baltic amber necklaces and bracelets on the skin can have a soothing and calming effect.
When amber is worn on the skin, the skin's warmth releases small amounts of healing oils from the amber which are then absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream.
Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are also recognized by allopathic medicine.
In Austria, Switzerland and Germany, you will find amber necklaces sold in local pharmacies

Are amber necklaces safe? As a safety feature there is a knot before and after each bead, so that even in the extremely unlikely event of the string being torn no beads are lost. Amber necklaces are secured with a traditional screw clasp, not a hook and ring and not a magnetic clasp. But.....
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.
Safety Disclaimer ~ please don't leave children unattended with amber jewelry, it may present a choking hazard.
Amber is also thought to bring good luck and is incredibly beautiful!!
