Used by Europeans for centuries, amber is a natural analgesic and has pain relieving qualities. When amber warms up to body temperature, succinic acid starts to vaporize, and it holds down the inflammatory reactions.
According to scientists, the Baltic amber â€“ is a 50 million years ago during the Eocene period hardened resin of conifers. Accumulated resin was washed by river from the forest soil and banked up south to the sea. Over time, due to oxidation and polymerization processes, fossil resin changed to amber. The Baltic sea amber from above mentioned resin of conifers has formed over 2 million years, taking on a variety of forms, colors and sometimes â€žgiving shelterâ€œ to different fossils.
Newbie parent-to-be here, but I thought this was for babies to chew on while teething, and expected it to be a necklace for mom to wear. It's actually very small, and meant for baby to wear, which seems dangerous to me. Have repurposed as a bracelet for myself.
