Hand strung Baltic Amber chip necklace, knotted between chips, with a polished druzy crystal honey carnelian agate, hand wire wrapped in 22 gauge silver plated wire. This elegant necklace is perfect for nights on the town. Baltic Amber is said to be the only true Amber, other fossilized tree resins are much younger, and come from the same modern conifer trees we have today. Baltic Amber is from extinct pine trees from Northern Europe, and date back 45 million years. It is said to have many healing properties, and is used to this day for arthritic pain relief. Wearing the Amber against the skin warms the material so it begins to release succinic acid and salts, which then absorb into your skin, much like bath soaking salts.
