    Description

    Antique butterscotch baltic necklace large graduated amber beadsĀ 

    Amber : Amber is a type of fossilised resin. This type of sap oozes from cracks in the bark of certain types of coniferous trees. This amber which is used in todays jewellery came from trees which lived millions of years ago. Sometimes as this resin moved very slowly down the trunk of a tree, an insect or something could be engulfed by the sap and is then preserved inside. They say that the best amber comes from the Baltic. Often from the Konigsberg region and on the Lithuanian coastline. Baltic amber is typically yellow and cloudy. It is usually fashioned into round or faceted beads. Amber was popular in art deco jewellery and then a little later by Georg Jensen.

    Taking care of and cleaning your vintage amber butterscotch necklace. Amber needs to be stored in such a way as to avoid scratching or chipping these beads. When not being worn the necklace should be wrapped in a soft cloth or tissue paper and stored in a draw or a box. Once in a while and it you feel the necklace needs it, you could just moisten a clean cloth with warm soapy water and gently clean each bead. Then make sure the beads are dry by wiping off with clean kitchen towel. Then polish with soft cloth.
