*Baltic Amber is not a stone, but a fossilized resin from the sap of the conifer trees, which lived 30-90 million years ago. As time passed, these trees were covered by the ocean or the sap was washed by large rivers into the Baltic sea. Throughout time, the resins have hardened and have thus formed into amber.
Baltic Amber has been revered for thousands of years for its powerful healing qualities. Amber worn against the body releases natural oils into the skin that are then circulated into the bloodstream. These oils have a calming effect and have analgesic(pain relieving), antispasmodic(eases the muscles), and febrifuge (fever reducing) properties. Baltic Amber necklaces are sold in pharmacies in many European and Asian countries. Baltic Amber is often found as an active ingredient in Chinese medicines.
The human body naturally produces succinic acid. In fact, it is the most active substance used through the process of inter-cellular energy creation and cellular respiration. Succinic Acid restores oxygen and energy to depleted cells and helps the body to return to a normal functioning state. It is a natural component of plant and animal tissues and its presence is beneficial in many ways. Baltic Amber contains some of the highest concentrations of succinic acid of anything found in nature.
To measure for the best fit for a teething necklace: make sure it's not long enough to get into the child's mouth while crawling, but long enough to allow the child to grow into the piece.
Standard Necklace Sizes:
11" under 1 year old (I recommend safety clasps for under 1yo) 12" 1 year-3 years
13" 3 years - 5 years
18" is average for a woman
22" is average for a man
Standard Bracelet / Anklet Sizes:4" is good for a newborn
5.5" is good for a child's ankle or wrist
7" is standard for an adult wrist
9.5" is standard for an adult ankle
This is just a basic sizing guide. Always measure for the best fit.
******Not sure what your supposed to get? ALL OF OUR AMBER IS UNPOLISHED and RAW so you can't go wrong with any color!!
YES, YOU CAN GET IT WET!! Chlorine isn't good for it, but a mild soap is. I clean mine with dish soap and a baby toothbrush every once in a while. You will see that the beads become shiny with body oils and will need to be cleaned. Then you can lay it in the sun to warm it and draw out the healing oils again.
Item may slightly differ from what is shown in the picture due to the natural variance of this product. Since amber and hazelwood are naturally occurring products, it is only natural that their shapes and color will differ from piece to piece.
Also, I am not a doctor or anything but I do use this stuff on my own family and we love it! Please use common sense when using any jewelry on children.
