This is an amazing big cognac colored Baltic Amber piece, attached to a double string of hemp knotted string with cognac colored Baltic Amber beads.
This piece is a beauty, it is polished to full transparency, weighs 35 grams, and you can see many pieces of moss and grass inside, which has been trapped in the Amber resin 40 million years ago, it is like wearing your private primal garden.
The piece really shines in the light, and thanks to the consistency of Amber is very light and very comfortable to wear, the whole necklace weighs 37 grams.
The piece measures a whopping 2.5 inch (6.5 cm) wide, 1.5 inch high (3.5 cm) and is over 0.5 inch thick in most places.

It is an unique and beautiful piece which I can never copy or remake, always feels warm to the touch, and very light to wear.
Baltic amber is one of the oldest Amber in the world (40 million year), is light to wear, and always feels warm to touch. It is the perfect material for jewelry.
Amber is not a stone or mineral, but an organic substance created by the dripping of resin from certain pine trees(conifers of the family Sciadopityaceae), which was fossilized over a period of millions of years. I am using Baltic Amber only, dating back 40 million years.
Amber contains up to 8% of succinic acid. Succinic acid is also termed 'Spirit of amber', which in history was used for rheumatic aches and pains.
Succinic acid is also created as a byproduct of the fermentation of sugar, lending us the typical bitter-salty taste in beers and wines.
It is believed to slowly give off the acid by wearing the amber on the skin, and numb small pains, like teething pains of kids, and rheumatic aches.
