As with everything, you always get what you pay for. There are many site’s and people claiming to sell Baltic Amber at very cheap prices.
Please be cautious when purchasing Amber. Baltic Amber can only be mined from the Baltic Sea, which is located in Europe. Baltic Amber is over 45 million years old, and undergoes a very time consuming hand made process to make each and every strand. Therefore it is impossible to get a very cheap prices! The main countries where Baltic Amber is mined include, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Russia and Denmark.
Amber mined in other countries like India, China, Australia & Africa is Copal (a younger type of Amber) and does not contain “Succinic Acid”.
There have also been numerous reviews about fake amber/glass coming from China.
