- Fifteen inches fits most children from ages four to twelve.
- Our amber pieces are hand made by our team of artisans in Lithuania. All sizes are approximate and have up to a 1 inch variance with necklaces and 1/2 inch variance with bracelets.
- They all have smooth rounded edges and have many variations within their own category - no two beads are alike (colour, shape and size)!
- Take a string and place it around your neck, wrist or ankle loosely and where you would like to wear it. Mark the string, place it next to a ruler or tape measure and voila ~ that is your size!
Frictional electricity, another quality of amber, may have reinforced the connection between healing, magic and symbolism. If you rub amber quickly against denim or wool it becomes electrically charged and you can use it to pick up a small piece of paper. Fun fact ~ the Greek word for amber is elektron. The Latin word for amber is electrum.
Amber has a long and interesting history around the globe including the famous Amber Room which was originally in Berlin, then moved to Russia. It was considered an 'eighth wonder of the world' before disappearing in the second world war. In Chinese cosmology, there are five elements. The fifth element is metal, a great conductor of electricity. In Akashic beliefs, the fifth element of is thought to reside in amber, which can hold an electric charge.
One of the most interesting things about amber is the numerous plant, insect and animal species that have been preserved over thousands of years. This gives an incredible window into the history of our world and many new species of plants and animals have been discovered from inclusions in Baltic amber.
