Baltic Amber is the fossilized tree resin from pine trees that lived in Northern Europe about 40 million years ago. Through the millions of years and the natural shifting of soil, this amber is mainly found in the region around the Baltic Sea. It can often even be found washed up on the shoreline. Baltic Amber is considered some of the finest amber in the world because of its healing abilities.
The Baltic Amber contains about 8% succinic acid, an acid naturally occurring within the human body, but when applied topically, it can reduce inflammation, swelling, and a variety of other ailments. Succinic acid releases from the stone when it’s warmed against the skin, providing healing benefits to whoever wears it. A necklace like this is an ideal piece if you are wearing amber for the healing benefit's since the pieces of amber lie flat across your skin.
Our multi-color beaded Baltic Amber Necklace contains large, smooth freeform beads. The necklace measures 24" in length and has a screw clasp. Each bead is individually hand-formed and knotted in-between to keep the amber secured in place.
