Visit my store and see other Baltic Amber Jewelry!! All amber we sell is Genuine, Authentic, and Natural Baltic Amber.It is not artificial, plastic or synthetic. Gintaras, found on the Baltic Sea shores, was and is highly treasured and is the only national gem of Lithuania. It is a fossil resin which came from the sap of several varieties of pines. It is believed, that about 60 million years ago, these pines grew in the subtropical forest in the present location of the Baltic Sea.
For unknown reasons these pines produced excessive amounts of sap. The overproduction may have been nature's method of healing natural injuries caused by storms, lightning, pests and diseases, or perhaps it was caused by a sudden change of cli mate. Sap dropped to the forest ground, was embedded into the local sediments, compressed by the overlying deposits, and in time became fossilized.
The original location of the deposits of Baltic amber are not known. It is believed that these deposits were removed, transported and redeposited by later movements of the sea, possible including major waves and currents, and by ancient rivers.
The sandy amber formation called "blue earth" now occurs in certain places at the bottom of the Baltic Sea and the Courish Lagoon and on the Samland Peninsula of former East Prussia. Subsequent glaciers of the Ice Ages also transported and redeposited amber.
Baltic Amber is the world's most beautiful amber! That's why we only source our amber from Lithuania. Avoid cheap amber that comes from anywhere else, it doesn't contain the same quality properties.
