Baltic Amber naturally contains succinic acid, a mild pain reliever and anti-inflammatory that helps with teething and other pain. Each necklace is Safety knotted with a screw clasp. They are 12.5 in long on average, sized to fit babies and toddlers, with length variations due to organic bead shapes and tension in the hand-tied knots. The beads are baroque shaped, measuring 0.2 inches in diameter on average.
We give half of our proceeds to charity. Our raw amber comes from Kaliningrad on the Baltic Sea, home to many orphaned children whose adult lives are often scared by sex-trafficking, drug addiction and alcoholism. We give 50% of our profit to care for their basic needs, in partnership with the Change30 project.
To certify authenticity and succinic acid content, our Amber Beads are randomly sampled, ground and tested via FTIR Spectroscopy at Lab/Cor Laboratories in Seattle, WA.
For best results wear against the skin as a necklace. The succinic acid in the amber is absorbed through the skin to help with teething pain, but the necklace is not intended to be mouthed or chewed on.
NOT A TOY! Choking and Strangulation hazard. Necklaces contain small beads and string, which can cause injury and even death. Do not wear while sleeping. Do not wear while unattended. Do not use to treat medical conditions. Consult your doctor before use.
