Note: Amber is a natural substance that formed millions of years ago from the sap of a tree that is now extinct. The age varies, and presumbably the color varies with the age which is from twenty million to sixty five million years old. Amber began to form at about the same time most dinosaurs became extinct, yes, it is possible that dinosaurs actually ate the trees from which this very amber formed! The lighter ones are younger, the darker it is the older it is. It Varies widely in color from an almost clear to totally opaque black. Each color has a definitive name that is accepted and recognized by the jewelry industry. Amber is unique in its chemical composition and appearance, has been popular for time immemorial. Some ancient people believed it has magical properties, it is definitely a beautiful substance and its magic today is in its ability to be so admired by so many people. Found primarily in the Baltic region, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania and Poland lie within the Baltic Region, it has also been found in small amounts in Mexico, San Salvador, and a particularly large piece, over 40 pounds, was recently found in Borneo although no other pieces were found there. It is therefore thought that this particular one was probably hauled there by some unknown and ancient people from someplace else. Most amber has bits of plant matter encased in it, some pieces also have bits of insects and a few very rare pieces have complete ants or gnats entombed in them. One piece was found in the Baltic area with an entire salamander in it, another with the bones of a frog, both are unique and priceless. The more common are the pieces with the plant matter which give it its unique mottled appearance; air bubbles in amber are also common and some even has multi million year old water trapped inside. We have set all pieces in Sterling Silver, suggest you use these pendants with necklaces that compliment the color of each particular piece. As it is a natural substance, no two are ever exactly the same in shape nor coloration. Amber will be a proud addition to your wardrobe. All Pieces are enlarged to show detail. Actual size is in the description.
