Illuminated like the sun, this one of a kind Sterling Silver Amber Pendant is a marvel of Mother Nature! This luscious warm gem is composed of fossilized tree resin from ancient evergreens. Ranging in age from 20 million to 320 million years old, it may include small plant and animal material, poetically trapped like in a sticky drop of honey. Because of its age amber is associated with wisdom, protection, and courage, and is believed to bring a balance of emotions to our hearts. This bold 27.50 carat natural amber bead measures 1 3/4 X 7/8 inches, and hangs from a 17 inch open link silver chain with a large round lobster closure. All stones are ethically sourced.
