Baltic Amber Polished

Baltic Amber Polished
This beautiful material originates from the Baltic Sea. The colour range is light honey gold, burnt orange; transparent to opaque. This amber is all natural and the finish is rough chunks. Amber is a very versatile material, working well for inlay, cutting, sculpting and beadmaking. It is a very soft material and takes an excellent, glossy polish.

From the Baltic Sea, Dominican Republic and Mexico; amber is a fossilized resin of coniferous trees of the Oligocene epoch (about 20 million years ago). It often contains fragments or entire specimens of insects and plants that accidentally fell into the sticky resin millions of years ago. Amber becomes electrically charged when rubbed.

Amber has been used since prehistoric times to make jewelry and religious objects; also used as a cure for various illnesses, both physical and mental. Because amber is a fossil, it has associations with time, cycles, and longevity. Considered an activator of one’s altruistic nature, amber also aids in the realization of the spiritual intellect, and helps to align the mental body as it moves toward merging with the spiritual body.
