Why Baltic amber is so special? Baltic amber has been used for centuries for its beauty. Historically, Baltic amber has been used to alleviate many types of pain — from dental pain, and arthritic joint pain to swelling, and inflammation. It is believed that white amber has special healing properties.
What is so special about amber malas? Amber malas are extremely beautiful, warm, and pleasant to use. Malas are made of genuine Baltic amber with a personal touch – stupa/guru beads are handmade individually for each mala.
Why do amber beads have “dust”, “particles”, and “scratches” inside?
Well, because it is natural parts of amber which is – in fact – 40 mln. years old pine resin found in blue clay in the Baltic Sea. Those particles are probably turf, sand, and microscopic particles of plants.
What are recommendations – how to use amber mala?
Amber is still breathing and interacting with the environment, so the amber colour may change over time, this is expected and contributes to the unique, intensely individual nature of amber.
To clean your amber mala, use a soft flannel cloth dampened with clean lukewarm water. You should dry your amber, lightly polish it with clear olive oil, and then remove any excess oil and polish it again with a soft cloth. Remember to be careful when cleaning or wearing amber mala – amber is a soft gemstone and can be scratched.
Why do we run this e-shop?
