Amber needs to be cared for and treasured like any valuable property. Because Baltic Amber
is soft and can be brittle because of age, it’s most important to be concerned about chemicals and oxidation. Your Amber should not be stored with other jewelry where it can rub against other pieces, especially metals. We recommend that you place your amber in a soft pouch (flannel and velvet are ideal for this purpose) with a drawstring for closing.
To clean your Amber, use a soft flannel cloth dampened with clean lukewarm water. You should dry your Amber very carefully, lightly polish with clear olive oil
and then remove any excess oil and restore the polish with another soft cloth.
Be sure to keep perfume or hairspray and similar chemicals away from your amber and never place your jewelry in commercial cleaning solutions. Because of the very sensitive nature of Amber, you should also remove Amber Jewelry
if you are cooking so that the Amber is not exposed to excessive heat.
Remember to be careful when cleaning Amber has an approximately Mohs Hardness Value
of 2.5, which means it’s a very soft gemstone, and can be scratched.
