About Baltic Amber:
Baltic Amber is an organic substance, a “fossil resin” produced by pine trees. Amber consists of 79 percent carbon, 10.5 percent hydrogen and 10.5 percent oxygen. Studies have shown that amber contains 40 compounds as well as succinic acid and additive salts of potassium, sodium, and iron. The warmth of the skin on the amber encourages the release of this natural analgesic. Amber works as a natural pain relieving and anti-inflammatory. Many mothers are getting amber for their babies to alleviate teething pain, colic and ear/throat pain. But it not just for babies, toddlers can use it for growing pains, teenage cramps and sport injuries, adults for arthritis, carpal tunnel, sciatica, migraines, stress, and more.

Tests for identifying Real Amber from Fake.
Salt Water test
The other effective test for identifying real Amber from fake is Salt Water test. In order to do this test you will need about 7 teaspoons of salt and a medium size cup of water. Add all teaspoons of salt into the water and stir well until salt is fully melted. In the next step add your Amber gemstone into this water. Real Amber should float in this water easily while majority of fakes will sink fast. The main drawback of this method is that it is not very suitable for testing Jewelry that has some metal or other components in it; however it works well for loose beads.
Hot Needle test
One more way to differentiate genuine Amber from fake is Hot Needle test. To perform this test you need to heat the needle and then push it against the stone. In case the needle went in only slightly or some cracks were left it means that it is most likely real Amber. Also if it is genuine Amber you should also notice a smell similar old punged tree. When doing the same test with fakes the needle goes in very easily and the smell is either plastic or fresh pine (Copal). The main disadvantage of this test is that it might leave a small mark, which is caused by burning.
