Amazing Baltic Amber
Baltic amber is my favourite gem, actually its not really a gem or indeed a stone but a resin. Amber is millions of years old with so much history attached. You can buy beautiful specimens containing insects or even birds that were unfortunate enough to fall into the tree sap which many many many moons later ended up turning into amber and eventually being found and kept as a prized piece.
Below is a list compiled but not complete of baltic amber uses:
• pain relief
• natural antibiotic
• natural analgesic
• accelerates the healing of wounds
• anti inflammatory
• anti stress
• arthritic ailments
• sore throat
• joint pain
• headaches and migraines
• thyroid problems
• throat problems
• ear problems
Amber has an electromagnetic charge, it will build up an electrical charge, so jewellery that sits against the skin is most effective for pain relief and healing.
Amber can help protect the body from the negative effect of mobile phones, microwaves etc.
Around 45 million years ago, pine trees in the Baltic regions, the Scandinavian countries, discharged resins. The amber resin from these trees, went solid and later became fossilised.
All this happened over many, many thousands of years. Gradually this resin moved from the pine forests and ended up close to the coastal regions where eventually it moved again ending up at the bottom of the sea.
Amber is a gift from the sea, beholding the power to heal and bring relief to those suffering with pain.
