Baltic Amber has been used for centuries in healing. It’s a “fossil resin” and organic substance produced from northern European pine trees.
While amber can come from other parts of the world, the Baltic region has one of the largest deposits in the world. There is amber that is more than 44 million years old and the area is now responsible for creating 100,000 tons or more of the precious gem.
At one time, the amber was thought to come from Pinites succinifer tree resin. By 1980s, researchers found that the resin comes from many other species, too. It is one of two gems that is created from vegetative origin and not mineral. Diamonds are the other.
In the past, amber was a form of payment for many items. It was routinely turned into jewelry, which could then be used to trade and sell. It was highly popular around the Baltic Sea area, since it was so much easier to come by than other items.
Citrine is a transparent, yellow variety of Quartz, ranging in color from pale to golden yellow, honey or almost brown, and may contain rainbow or sparkle inclusions. The name comes from the French word citron, meaning lemon. It was used as a gem in Greece as far back as 300 B.C., and because of its color, is sometimes mistakenly referred to as Topaz.
Natural citrine can be found in the Ural Mountains of Russia, in Dauphine, France, and in Madagascar.
Fluorite an important industrial mineral composed of calcium and fluorine (CaF2). It is used in a wide variety of chemical, metallurgical, and ceramic processes. Specimens with exceptional clarity and color are cut into gems or used to make ornamental objects.
It is deposited in veins by hydro-thermal processes. In these rocks it often occurs as a gangue mineral associated with metallic ores. Fluorite is also found in the fractures and cavities of some limestones and dolomites. It is a very common rock-forming mineral, found in many parts of the world. In the mining industry, fluorite is often called "fluorspar."
CARE AND CLEANING
As with all jewelry, avoid spraying with perfumes, or coming into direct contact with lotions or make-ups. Remove jewelry before bathing or swimming. If the necklace needs to be cleaned, gently wipe it off with a baby wipe and use a Q-tip for the small crevices. Allow to dry completely before wearing. If your jewelry tarnishes, clean it with some lemon juice and a toothbrush and dry with a paper towel.
Copper jewelry WILL change colors over time, also known as oxidation. I do not seal my copper jewelry, as some people feel that there are medicinal benefits to having copper touch their skin. I leave it up to the consumer to choose what's best for them and their bodies. Occasionally, copper jewelry will turn your skin green. It is not harmful to you, and washes off easily.
