Charlie Banana Amber Necklace 11" Boroque - Polish Cognac P
Baltic Amber is a fossilized resin of ancient Pinus succinifera trees, living over 50 million years ago. It is not a mineral, but an Organic substance and therefore is like a "living" stone, warm against the skin.
Baltic Amber bead necklaces are believed to make the eruption of teeth less painful and make the teeth grow stronger when worn in direct contact with the skin. This is because Baltic Amber contains 3-8% of Succinic Acid, a powerful therapeutic substance with many applications for healing. Succinic Acid has been shown to strengthen body and improve the immune system, and be an effective pain relief.
In Antiquity amber was called electrum (elektor "shining sun"). Phoenicians, Etruscans and Romans believed that Amber protected from the evil spirits. In the Baltic tribes Amber was hung over the beds of newborn babies as a blessing by the worshiped gods of the sea and sun and as a protection against misfortune.
