Baltic amber necklace pendants with enclosed insect Read more.
Baltic amber is fossilized resin of pine trees from the Nordic region and is about 44 million years old.
Trees up to 40 meters
At that time there was a relatively mild climate and the pine forest stretched out far into the Nordic area with trees up to 40 meters high. The insects trapped in the resin are exceptionally well preserved and have learned science a lot about the evolution between these fossil specimens and our current insects.
Because amber is fossilized resin it belongs together with pearls and coral to one of the few organic gemstones. Amber has been worn for centuries as a amulet for good luck or for health. But has also been populair as a jewel or as a status symbol. We offer a selection of amber pendants with trapped insects. All pendants are handiwork.
Spiritual working of amber
Amber works as a healing stone which removes negative energy from the body. Wearing amber jewelry stimulates a good mood and reduces depressive feelings.
