Our amber is from the region of the Baltic Sea.
On the Mohs scale of hardness, it is between 2.5 to 3, very soft.
The colors include light yellow, orange, red, and dark brown.
Plant material and insects can be visible in the amber.
Amber calms the nerves by releasing anxiety and tension, irritation, & feelings of being overwhelmed.
Alleviates depression, & increases clarity of mind.
This is a very good stone for someone who is grieving or depressed but needs to make important decisions.
Amber should be protected from scratches and harsh blows, although it can be easily polished by us or another jeweler.
Some amber will lose their finish in ultrasonic cleaners,
so it is best to avoid ultrasonics and simply clean the amber by wiping gently with a moist cloth .
