Why is Baltic amber 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, arthritic joint pain to swelling or inflammation. It is believed that white amber has special healing properties.

What is so special about amber malas? Amber mala is charming, warm, lightweight 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 a natural part of amber which is – in fact – 40 mln. year-old pine resin found in blue clay in the Baltic Sea. Those particles are probably turf, sand, and microscopic particles of plants.

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.

Why do we run this e-shop?
Yes, we practice Buddhist meditation. We run this workshop – well, it’s simple – because we enjoy it. And because of the aesthetics of amber mala.
