The color of honey, or fire, or candlelight. This amber nugget has a beautiful shine!
It is fully transparent, and has some interesting curves and nooks.
It is an absolute beauty, very warm and natural.
It has been hand sanded and polished by myself with the finest sandpaper I can find, and polished with special amber wax for protection.
I have carefully attached 2 sterling silver hooks onto the back, so you can attach the stone easily to a choker cord.
You will receive the stone with the ribbon showed in the last photo, left long enough so it can be tied to fit perfectly, and can easily replace this with a necklace of your choice, amber looks great on hemp, silver and leather, depending on occasion and outfit.
The stone is a stunning 2 inches (5cm) long, 1.2 inches (3 cm) wide and 0.7 inch (2 cm)thick
It is a very elegant and beautiful piece, warm to the touch, made from Baltic amber, which is about 40 million years old!
All my pieces are unique, you will get exactly the item shown on the photo's.
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.
All my items will be send with prioritized, registered mail, and arrive gift-wrapped.
