The Baltic region is home to about 80% of all the known amber and is considered to be the highest grade for the world's best amber. It dates from about 40-60 million years ago. Baltic amber primarily comes from Eastern Germany, Poland, Lithuania and Russia. Because Baltic amber contains about 8% succinic acid, it is also termed “succinite.” Amber is actually tree resin that can come from many different species of trees.

How amber is formed: The sap, dripping from trees, fell to the ground and was compressed by the overlying deposits - which in time became “fossilized.” Some amber fragments contain tiny plants and plant pieces, pollen and insects - trapped in the sticky sap and “preserved in time.”

In Healing: Amber is thought to produce a positive effect on the heart, nervous system and the kidneys. It also is warm to the touch and is said to reduces stress.
