Illuminated like the sun, these one of a kind amber earrings are 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. A bold 83.9 carat natural amber bead, measuring 2.5x1 inches, hangs from an 18 inch dark brown macramé cord with a sterling silver button closure. All stones are ethically sourced.
