All of the baltic amber carried here comes from either Lithuania or Russia. Both places are the top producers of genuine baltic amber.
Baltic Amber baby teething necklaces are suitable for babies (toddlers) and children. They are not designed for chewing them with teeth, parent supervision is recommended at all times when baby is wearing necklace. Amber is associated with sunlight and warmth and reputed to boost the immune system, reduce inflammation and accelerate the healing of wounds and is thus the perfect help for babies and toddlers who wear it when they are teething.
When a baby is wearing an amber teething necklace on the skin, the skin's warmth releases healing oils from the amber (a resin) which are absorbed via the skin into the bloodstream. Amber is not a stone and therefore warm to the touch, as well as very comfortable and light to wear. Children wearing amber is a very old traditional custom in Europe and the Far East. Traditional beaded amber necklaces are a less intrusive remedy for the pain and side effects of teething, such as lack of appetite, upset tummies, ear ache, fevers and colds. A natural analgesic, amber will help calm a baby without resorting to drugs. Amber's anti-inflammatory and therapeutic properties are also recognized by allopathic medicine.
Sizes, colors, and shapes of stones and the length of the necklace may vary from necklace to necklace. Every bead is knotted in between to prevent choking hazard. Even if a string got torn only one bead would come of. Strong silk is used for every necklace which also has a twist screw closure.

We only carry lighter colors which are known to be the strongest forms of amber with the highest amounts of healing properties. The lighter the bead the more rare it is and the stronger it is, but all the forms we have here work very well. We've sold approximately 500+ the last 4 years between our two stores and I personally use two put together for my migraines.
A small note on our new stone we managed to get and are excited to carry... white marble and royal white, which are very rare and highest in theraputic properties.
White color Baltic amber - contains so much amber acid, that when burned as incense it has sour smell. Less than 1% of Baltic amber is in white or very light yellow color, so for this reason and for healing properties this color is very valued. White Baltic amber is always polished or unpolished, because in raw state it is in dark yellow or brown color due to surface oxidation.
Milk beads are also a white amber and have the same properties as 'white marble or 'royal white'. All differ in their looks a bit. We have had milk on rare occassions and will continue to get more often then royal or marble.
