Baltic Amber Info

what is Baltic Amber? Baltic Amber is a fossilized tree resin originating from the Baltic Sea Region of Lithuania (near Russia). Baltic Amber contains Succinic Acid and when it is heated against the skin it releases an all natural analgesic (pain relief) which helps to ease teething pains in children as well as colic and gas and other ailments. This works so well that necklaces made in lengths for children are the main thing used in Europe and Asia for teething pains and other ailments. These also work wonders with adults! They help with Migraines, arthritis, acid reflux and many many other issues!! The Amber I use is imported by me directly from Lithuania. It is found in the Baltic Region in the Baltic Sea area. Baltic Amber is believed to contain the highest amounts of this acid. Though all types of amber are believed to contain this acid only Baltic Amber contains enough to be considered healing. Contrary to what some think NOT ALL Amber is Baltic.

 

"Amber is associated with the solar plexus chakra and sometimes the sacral chakra. Mystical lore says that amber is beneficial for purifying the body, headaches, bone problems, heart problems, circulation, ears, hearing problems, endocrine system, fibromyalgia, intestinal/digestive disorders, kidney, bladder, lungs, and general healing purposes."

Succinum is used in treating stomach ache.


Topical applications: Astringing ulcers and promoting tissue regeneration. Used externally, it is efficacious in the treatment of ulcers, boils, swellings. ...

It is interesting to note that the Chinese rely on Pure, Natural Baltic Amber. They have found what science has proven and that is that the Amber Acid from Natural Baltic Amber is the active agent and that they need Natural Baltic Amber for their remedies to be effective. Simply stated, even unripe gooseberries and rhubarb stalks, which are the richest in the natural acid, contain a thousand times less of the acid than in Baltic amber- succinite.

Russia is a major source of Baltic Amber. And their experience with it over the centuries has added to the knowledge base. (http://www.masterpage.com.pl/amber/amber-cures.html )

 Some Interesting facts about amber:

Amber is often sold heated, melted and pressed or even mixed with or made from synthetic materials.

Most true Baltic amber is milky and pale under the crust. The warm "amber" color occurs first after it has been exposed to oxygen for about a hundred years. To make amber more attractive to the purchases, todays industrial amber jewelry producers are manipulating to get the warm brown-reddish amber color, which often also includes discs, called sunspangles.

The most common method make amber clear is to put the material under pressure and heat in an autoclave together with nitrogen. After this procedure, it is put into an oven to obtain the sunspangles and the cognac color. This heating and treating is made to make amber jewelry more attractive.

Baltic amber occurs naturally in a variety of colors: white, yellow, brown, black, red, green and blue. The most common are honey-colored and milky. A small percentages is bone white, due to microscopic gas bubbles. The clear and translucent amber results from flowing and dripping resin. This kind often shows layers from continuing flow on already dried resin. The black and dirty brown colors are caused by a mix of resin, soil and plant fragments. The most rare have a tone of green or blue caused by gas or inclusions. If the craftsman keeps part of the natural shape, when sanding the raw amber, the crust or inclusions give a natural variety of multicolored tones.

It is possible to melt amber pebbles and press them to bigger lumps. It then becomes harder, and less brilliant when cut. Any color can be added in this procedure. This pressed amber is still considered as natural amber by some producers. Info found here


 Note* These necklaces and bracelets/anklets are designed with several safety features in the event of emergency. These necklaces have been hand knotted by me between each bead as a safety measure in case the child breaks it, the necklace will only lose one bead lessening the chance of the child swallowing a bead and choking. This necklace/bracelet/anklet has also been designed with either 100% silk thread or tuff cord (your choice) that with excessive force will break which is part of the design. Also this necklace/bracelet/anklet has been designed with either a screw clasp that is knotted from the inside, a spring ring clasp w/jump ring or a magnetic clasp that will provide a break away (separation) point in the event of being tightened too much or getting caught again to prevent the possibility of strangulation.

IF this piece of jewelry does get broken due to the safety measures or any other reasons within 3 months I will fix it free (return shipping not included). This includes completely restring the piece and exchanging clasps if needed etc. I am only human and i do make every piece by hand so there are possibilities of things breaking as with all jewelry. So i do my best to offer the best customer service in fixing any problems if they ever arise.
