I became enarmoured with this precious stone about 20 years ago when I found out that amber is the fossilized resin of ancient trees which forms through a natural polymerization of the original organic compounds and that most of the world's amber is in the range of 30-90 million years old. I thought this was fascinating. So over the years I bought a few pieces and have been given a few pieces. This piece is really interesting with it's antique silver and lapis lazuli. It's so heavy that I often am dying to wear it but end up having to take it off after a couple of hours. I love the way amber heats up from your body heat. I think it's one of earth's most amazing gifts.
