Amber is fossil resin. Baltic Amber owes its exceptional reputation to its fascinating history, spanning the period from the times when it was sticky resin in Tertiary forests at least forty million years ago to the point when it was found as a small solid piece on the Baltic beach.
Some of the inclusions still have their original three-dimensional form and may be examined as closely as any contemporary specimens. Today, just like ages ago, amber is one of the most highly valued and fashionable precious stones in the world.
Amber occurs in a range of different colors. As well as the usual yellow-orange-brown that is associated with the color "amber", amber itself can range from a whitish color through a pale lemon yellow, to brown and almost black.
Amber has been touted as one of the most potent, natural substances that can rid us of most of our common ailments such as arthritis, anxiety, chronic illness and even teething pain. To reap ambers benefits , you need to make certain that the amber touches some part of your body consistently. The reason for this is amber releases its healing powers into the body when it heats up from contact with our skin. The remarkable health benefits of amber are attributed to its unique ingredient, succinic acid. (we do not offer any medical advise..always consult your physician)
