Amber, a Timeless Treasure
A gemstone with time trapped inside! Amber is a type of fossilized tree resin from millions of years ago. Baltic amber, or succinite, hails from the Baltic region of Europe and is found on the Baltic Sea’s seabed. Air bubbles trapped in the stone causes it to have low density resulting in genuine amber floating in saltwater. The Baltic region has the largest amber deposits in the world! Inclusions in amber make each piece unique and one of a kind. Inclusions typically include air bubbles, pollen, leaves, and other organic debris. Amber can range in color, but the most popular colors range from yellow-orange to brown, almost like honey, and Baltic amber is known for its delicious golden colors! Amber exudes sophistication and luxury and is often set in pieces inspired by nature.
