Yainitar Green Amber Silver Pendant and Chain

  • £12500

One of the best Green Amber gemstone we have managed to source . A wonderful gemstone with flecks of very pale green against a twinkling matrix of darker green . Hand crafted in silver and complete with an 18 inch silver chain . As the Amber itself is so dramatic we decided to encase it in a simple silver setting. As the nature of this gemstone changes so much with the light we have show images of the piece in both bright and a dull light . Please check our Instagram for a video of the pendant. 

Amber is the fossilised resin of ancient pine trees. Our Amber comes from the Baltic region and was formed during the Eocene geological period about 44 million years ago when the Baltic region was experiencing a semi -tropical climate.  As the resin seeped from the trees it began to solidify on the tree bark or fell to the forest floor. Eventually as the trees fell to the ground layers of sediments covered the ancient forests and a process known as molecular polymerization occured thus creating beautiful Amber.

The Ancient Romans believed that small Amber pieces were the tears of the Gods.  It was also thought that the rays of the sun were captured in the Amber, what a lovely idea! Amber was one of the commodities traded along the famous "Amber Road" which lead from the Baltic to the Mediterranean and then onto the " Silk Route"  to the East. 

A birthstone for Aries and Leo, it is said to promote courage , vitality and personal growth
