About Amber

 BALTIC AMBER - Magic Stone, Gold of the North

Baltic amber, also known as, succinate is a fossilized resin originating from the extinct conifer species, which over 40 million years ago was part of a vast forest growing at the place where the Baltic Sea now lies. Unlike other fossil resins, it contains between 3-8 percent of amber acid, which is believed to have healing and nurturing properties.

Baltic amber occurs in many colors and in various degrees of transparency. Due to the presence of succinic acid, Baltic amber acts as a biostimulator. It stimulates the nervous system, regulates the kidney and intestinal function, is an anti-inflammatory and anti-toxic agent. It is called the stone of life, because it can provide the body with life-giving electrons and negative ions, which increase the body’s ability to self-heal, and it strengthens the body’s immune system. Throughout the centuries, many legends have arisen around amber. The ancient Chinese believed that the soul of a tiger lays enchanted in amber - the eyes of a tiger have the colour of amber. Gladiators carried pieces of amber with them, which they believed ensured their victory in battles. And the women of Ancient Rome believed that contact with amber provided a young and fresh appearance.
