Baltic Amber in Jewelery
All amber is fossilized tree resin. Amber is between 30-90 million years old. Baltic amber in particular additionally contains a substance called succinic acid. When worn on the skin, body heat causes the amber to release an oil containing succinic acid, which when absorbed into the skin, works like a natural Ibuprofen, blocking pain and reducing inflammation. Note that succinic acid is an alkalinizing acid so it won't add to your body's acidity, and may actually slightly lower it.
