Baltic Amber is not a stone, but a fossilized tree resin. Each bead is a beautiful and unique piece of history - a fossil from an ancient forest! Our Genuine Baltic Amber is 100% natural and is available in a variety of colors. Because of this, *each* piece of Baltic Amber jewelry we sell is one-of-a-kind. Our Baltic Amber comes from amber mines near the Baltic Sea. Lava is an amazing stone. It is not only beautiful; it is naturally porous, making it perfect for diffusing essential oils.
