About Baltic Amber

Q: What is Baltic amber?

A: Baltic amber is fossilized tree resin from ancient forests that existed around 44 million years ago in the Baltic Sea region. It is prized for its natural beauty and purported healing properties.

Q: How can I verify the authenticity of Baltic amber?

A: Authentic Baltic amber can be tested using several methods, including the saltwater test (real amber floats), the smell test (real amber emits a pleasant resinous scent when heated), and the UV light test (real amber fluoresces under UV light). We provide certificates of authenticity with our products to guarantee their genuineness.

Q: What makes Baltic amber special compared to other types of amber?

A: Baltic amber contains a higher concentration of succinic acid, which is believed to contribute to its healing properties. This makes Baltic amber particularly valued in both jewelry and alternative medicine.

Healing Properties

Q: Do Baltic amber products really have healing properties?

A: Baltic amber is believed to have anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties due to the presence of succinic acid. While many people report positive effects, scientific evidence is limited, and results may vary. Personal experiences and traditional use often guide the belief in its benefits.

Q: How should I wear my Baltic amber jewelry for maximum benefits?

A: For potential therapeutic benefits, it's best to wear Baltic amber jewelry directly against the skin. This allows body heat to release small amounts of succinic acid, which can be absorbed through the skin. Consistent wear may help maximize the effects.

Q: Are there any scientific studies supporting the healing properties of Baltic amber?

A: While there are some studies and anecdotal reports suggesting the benefits of succinic acid, comprehensive scientific research is still needed.

Care and Maintenance

Q: How do I care for my Baltic amber jewelry?

A: Clean your Baltic amber jewelry with a soft cloth and warm water. Avoid using harsh chemicals or ultrasonic cleaners, as these can damage the amber. Store amber pieces away from direct sunlight and extreme temperatures to maintain their natural beauty.

Q: Can Baltic amber be worn in water?

A: It's best to remove Baltic amber jewelry before swimming or bathing, as prolonged exposure to water can weaken the string and dull the amber's shine. Additionally, exposure to chemicals in pools or hot tubs can damage the amber.
