Amber jewellery was produced in the days of old. The earliest amber
objects discovered in Lithuania date back to the Neolithic period
(4000-1600 BC). Amber amulets were worn by oracles to signify their
status. Warriors had amber talismans that were supposed to protect them
from the evil eye and bring them luck. Women wore amber necklaces and
used brass broaches decorated with amber to pin their mantles. Despite
primitive methods of processing ancient amber treasures still fascinate
us by their aesthetic quality, because as early as back then people
recognised and valued the natural beauty of amber.
Today amber is appreciated all over the world. The old tradition has
it that in order to have the healing effect amber is supposed to touch
the body. This way you will feel its qualities as an energiser and
bio-stimulator. The value of an amber piece of jewellery depends on the
size of the piece and the processing techniques.
