What is Baltic Amber?
Baltic Amber is fossil of resin that is like sap which formed over 45millions years old from Baltic sea region of Europe. Although not a mineral, it is generally classified as a gemstone. A common misconception is that Amber is made of tree sap. Sap is the fluid that circulates through a plant’s vascular system, while resin is the semi-solid amorphous organic substance secreted in pockets and canals through epithelial cells of the tree.
How does it work?
It contains the highest quantity in nature (3-8%) of succinic acid, which produces its anti-inflammatory properties. When Amber is worn your body heat warms the resin then it releases its oil into your bloodstream to activate this healing qualities. Recent scientific research has proved that succinic acid has a very positive influence on the human body by helping to improve immunity and the balance of acids when absorbed into the bloodstream.
Where didi it come from?
Amber, washed up from the bottom of the Baltic Sea and the Courish Lagoon, is collected on the shores, especially after storms, and sorting it from the seaweeds with which it is entangled. Some amber is dug out locally from” small amber deposits “along the coasts of the Baltic Sea and Courish Lagoon at Priekule, Palanga, Nida, Juodkrante and other places. In the past fishermen waded into rough water near the shore and caught the floating amber with dip nets. Because of its danger this method has become nearly obsolete. In the Courish Lagoon, fishermen in boats pry the amber loose and catch it with a dip net of similar type.
