Being square looks great when amber is involved. This Baltic Amber Multi-Color Squares Necklace is handmade in Poland with amber, a fossilized resin. This organic gem has been prized since the stone age. Graduated amber squares in different colors hang from a sterling silver lariat chain that adds shine and is adjustable.
This jewelry item comes packaged in a white box (pictured).
Sometimes called "the golden gem of the ages," amber is often found in coastal areas—especially from the Baltic Sea where it is sometimes found on the shore after a storm. Since the Stone Age amber has been prized and revered by many cultures—for its beauty and for its supposed curative and magical powers. Amber is curated by the Mineral Sciences Department at our National Museum of Natural History.
