What is amber teething necklace?
Amber Teething Necklace are designed to be worn by children when they are teething. Amberizon have designed an exceptional range of Baby Amber Teething Necklaces handcrafted with your precious childs safety & comfort in mind. All of our necklaces are made using 100% natural raw Baltic amber beads. Necklaces are made for both baby boys and baby girls! The origin of Baltic amber is Lithuania, Poland, Russia (Kalininrad), Latvia and Estonia. In theory when baby wears amber, his body heat triggers the release of a minute amount of oil that contains succinic acid, which is absorbed into the bloodstream.
Length and size of amber teething necklace, bracelet or anklet
How long should the baby teething necklace be? The ideal length of baby necklace is 32-33 centimeters which is approximately 12.6 inches. It is not too long and not too short to let the baby get accustomed with the necklace. The standard length of baby anklet/bracelet is 5.0-5.5 inches (approximately 12.5-13.5 cm).
Can babies sleep with amber necklace on?
Never let your baby wear teething necklaces, bracelets or anklets at night, as both of these options could present a choking hazard. Children wearing teething necklaces should never be left unattended and should never wear the jewelry while sleeping or napping.
Do amber necklaces lose their effectiveness over time?
Do amber necklaces wear out? Healing properties of amber last roughly from 1 to 3 years. Amber jewelry is good for roughly 2 years, depending on how it is cared for.
Are amber teething necklaces okay to chew on?
No! They're not meant to be chewed or used as toys, just simply worn. The necklaces are made for wearing, not for chewing. Please use caution and supervise your child while using the necklace!
Baltic amber for teething
Amber teething beads are not just necklaces. Amber for babies is also used as bracelets and/or anklets.
Raw amber vs polished amber
RAW Baltic amber is unprocessed, untreated, unheated form of amber, so raw is the true form of amber. Raw amber does have more succinic acid than polished. Since raw amber does have more succinic acid than polished, raw is considered to be more effective than polished.
Colors and transparency level of Baltic amber
Baltic amber comes in a variety of colors: honey, lemon, cognac, yellow, butterscotch, cherry, green, grey, red, aurora green, white (royal amber), black. The composition and colour of amber is determined by many factors, such as the origin of amber, the sediments in which the amber has been deposited, the local climate, the formation of the near surroundings and the temperature in the ground. Blue amber is the rarest of all the colors of amber. Pure white or “Royal amber” has a noble ivory color and is considered as one of the most valuable shades. Besides color scheme, amber is characterized by transparency level: from fully transparent to completely opaque. The price of amber at any given moment depends on its color and level of transparency.
Physical Properties of Amber
Genuine amber is lightweight and slightly warm to the touch. This is due to it being underground for millions of years and because of its chemical composition. You can distinguish fake amber that is made of glass from the real thing because glass is harder, cooler, and heavier than authentic amber. A mineral is a naturally occurring homogeneous solid with a definite chemical composition and ordered crystalline structure. It is usually of an inorganic origin. Amber is not a mineral, because it has an organic origin and amorphous structure (no orderly internal arrangement of atoms).
Why Baltic amber is the best type of amber?
Real amber is technically not a gemstone or mineral, but instead is fossilized sap from prehistoric trees that grew as far back as almost fifty million years ago, primarily in Scandinavia and elsewhere around the Baltic Sea. It is generally accepted that the amber from the Baltic region is the world’s finest. There are several types of amber, categorized according to their region of origin. The most commonly found is Baltic Amber, which comes from the Baltic Sea shores. Baltic Amber is thought to be the highest quality, which makes it very valuable. This natural amber can be over 40 million years old!
Is Amber considered a precious stone?
Amber is considered a gem because it glows and glistens when polished, but Amber is not actually a gemstone. It is the hardened resin of certain types of ancient trees that have been fossilized over millennia. Because of its unique properties, Amber has been adorned and studied relentlessly for centuries.
Hardness: 1-3. Burmese amber, or amber from Myanmar, is the hardest at 3 on the hardness scale; Baltic amber is usually in the range of 2-2.5; Dominican amber is the softest at 1-2. Geologically younger amber tends to be softer than amber that has been buried for a long time.
Can vary greatly depending on the botanical source, though all have terpenes or compounds that are linked as the resin matures. It is thought that Baltic amber, or succinite, contains 3-8% succinic acid (succus is Latin for juice); succinic acid is believed to form from microorganism-induced fermentation of the cellulose contained in the resin. One composition of an amber variety is: oxygenated hydrocarbon (carbon 67-87%, hydrogen 8.5-11%, oxygen 15%, sulfur 0-0.46%). Although this composition was believed to be the hardened tree resin from the genus Pinus, chemical studies show these pines were not the source of Baltic amber.
The average composition of amber leads to the general formula C10H16O.
