Raw or polished Baltic Amber? Which is better?

Raw or polished Baltic Amber?  Which is better?
When it comes to understanding the critical role that Natural Baltic Amber plays in our health and wellbeing, most people can answer the basic question of “Does it work?” The answer is a huge yes. But there are other good points to make as to the color, texture, positioning, and so forth of your beautiful Amber Accessory. For example, are the lightest colors of Amber more powerful than the darker ones? The answer to that question is a definite “no.” Yellow or golden Amber have equal natural healing ability as a red or cognac color.

Another good question for which we have provided more detail in answering: Is there a difference in effectiveness based on the surface of Amber? Is raw material better than polished? Here’s what the Amber Artisans who have been crafting these timeless pieces for several generations have to say.

Raw Baltic amber jewelry are created with natural, untreated beads which have been carefully selected to face each other in size and appearance. The beads have very precise holes drilled in the center of each one so they align well when worn. This type of raw Amber bead with interact with the skin more so because of the prominent edges on each bead. As a result, the effect of wearing this type of amber actually serves as a massage, increasing circulation and stimulating healing properties to be more quickly absorbed through the skin...

Unpolished Baltic Amber beads are taken from the raw form, rounded and shaped, and will have a matte finish in appearance. These beads will also become smaller in size than raw amber as a result of shaping but the finished product will be more uniform in shape and lay more comfortably against the skin. The healing properties are just as powerful as those in raw amber.

Polished Baltic Amber becomes more of a “mirror to the soul” of Baltic Amber. With a highly polished and shiny surface, each Amber bead showcases the natural imperfections within such as tiny bubbles, inner layers, fissures and rivers, clouds of contrast, and on a rare occasion, the highly prized insect which is captured within the Amber as it was formed millions of years ago. While polished amber tends to be more popular because of a more contemporary shape and appeal, each of these forms of Baltic amber has a personality and charm all its own. More importantly, all have the very same exceptional ability to enhance our wellness as well as heal us.

Regardless of which style of natural Baltic Amber Healing Jewelry you choose, you can look good and feel good, too. That’s the best answer of all.
