Amber Necklaces & Pendants

Amber necklaces are as much aesthetically pleasing as they are pieces of ancient history. Though amber can glimmer like a gemstone, it is not a mineral. It was once plant resin millions of years ago that, over time, became compressed into the brilliant, glasslike material.

Not necessarily aware of this impressive history, our ancient ancestors nevertheless appreciated amber for its amazing glow and for its connotations as a magical source of healing. As a result, wearing necklaces and bracelets of carved amber beads was considered a means of promoting good health or at least warding off disease.

Their rationale was, in some regards, spot on. More recent science has shown that the outer layer of amber contains succinic acid, which has been proven to boost your health.


Quick Facts

  • The Greeks called amber “elektron,” because they noted that, when rubbed with a cloth, the amber could hold what would become known as an electric charge (not coincidentally, “elektron” became the root of the word “electricity”)
  • The largest documented piece of amber, weighing in at 150 pounds, was unearthed on the Southeast Asian island of Borneo in the 19th century
  • Amber has proven essential in our scientific understanding of the prehistoric world: the plethora of insects and materials that were trapped in plant resin millions of years ago has provided an amazing source of information
