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.  

Frictional electricity, another quality of amber, may have reinforced the connection between healing, magic and symbolism. If you rub amber quickly against denim or wool it becomes electrically charged and you can use it to pick up a small piece of paper.  Fun fact ~ the Greek word for amber is elektron.  The Latin word for amber is electrum.  

One of the most interesting things about amber is the numerous plant, insect and animal species that have been preserved over thousands of years.  This gives an incredible window into the history of our world and many new species of plants and animals have been discovered from inclusions in Baltic amber. 

Amber is thought to bring 'good luck'.  
Amber is meant to be worn, never ingested or chewed.  

Never leave children unattended around amber jewelry.
