I decided to use some Baltic amber beads (chipped) for some sterling silver earrings. Amber is one of those stones that is very expensive and Baltic amber is the most common.
I love how flat these beads were and how they would work well for bracelets and necklaces.
Amber is a good luck stones and eases joint issues in the body. Damali by Gemstone gifts states that Amber relieves anxiety, eases depression and is a good emotional protection stone. It promotes clarity and clears unwanted energy. I have heard that it is great to wear for liver, bladder and spleen complaints. Amber is also a beautiful name. :) These beads may be synthetic, but the color is still pretty. I am tempted to try to the burn test to see if they are real.
