It’s old… like really old! (Someone ask me how old… )
Now when we say that the amber has fossilised over a long period of time, we mean a really really long period of time. Baltic amber comes from ancient forest resin and is approximately 44 million years old! Each little bead is like a piece of prehistoric history to adorn your body with.
More colour than your Nan’s tie-dyed Woodstock outfit!
As if this all wasn’t cool enough to begin with, Baltic amber also comes in a number of colours, ranging from milky white, to lemon yellow, to dark red, and even black This makes for a great range of colour preferences, and also allows for some really cool combinations to be made.
While many people wonder if there are differences between the different colours of Baltic amber, there is no information nor reason to believe that they vary in Succinic Acid content. The difference seems to only extend to visual appearances.
However keep in mind that some colours, such as pale milky white, are actually very rare. This means some colours do come at a premium price as compared to others.
