Product Description

Custom Wire Wrapped Amber Pendant/slide/enhancer/necklace in sterling silver wire ... size 36mm x 21mm or 1 7/8x 13/16 inches 

 

The gemstone Amber is one of the birthstones listed for the Sun Sign for Taurus.  April 21 Until May 20th.

Amber deposits have been found that range between 360 and one million years old and belong between the Carboniferous and Pleistocene geological periods.   As sticky resin oozed from ancient pine trees, small insects, plant material, feathers and other small objects in the path of the flow became entrapped.  Over time, the resin was encased in dirt and debris and through a process of heat and pressure it fossilized to become amber.  

Amber increases in value with the rarity and perfection of the entrapped object.  Complete insect specimens are rare though and command top price.

Copal, is also a tree resin but it hasn't fully fossilized to amber. It is usually only thousands of years old, instead of millions of years. There is strong debate about some deposits of African amber as to whether it is copal or true amber.

Amber can range in color from dark brown to a light almost clear lemon yellow.  Most amber that has been used in jewelry is from the region of the Baltic Sea or the Dominican Republic.
