Ancient Lithuanians called amber gintaras, which means “protector.” They believed it had healing properties, and indeed it may. When trees are damaged, they heal themselves with resin. When those trees become fossilized over millions of years, that healing resin is what we harvest as amber. The lightweight, natural “gem” is plentiful along the Baltic Sea. It comes in shades ranging from lemon yellow to honey to dark coffee, all of which are showcased in this long strand from Lithuania.
Comments about Lithuanian Tricolor Amber Necklace:
My grandparents were Lithuanian and I love amber's spectrum of colors. This necklace is a perfect way to remember my heritage and add to my collection. My sister admired it and I plan to surprise her with one of her own.
