Baltic Amber Tear Drop Pendant, Rowena Watson Designs

Regular price $440.00 Sale

A beautiful teardrop of Baltic amber that is rounded on both sides has been set in a simple sterling silver pendant. The translucence of the amber allows you to see the tiny little insect that has been trapped within, frozen in time. Such a rare find in a beautiful piece like this. 

Formed over 45 million years ago, Baltic Amber is an organic substance, a “fossil resin” produced by pine trees which grew in Northern Europe.

Baltic Amber has been used since ancient times, making Amber jewellery and ornaments, as an ingredient in perfumes and has long been used in Folk Medicine for its healing properties.
