Commonly Asked Questions
Q: There are different designs. Do they all do the same job?
A: Yes, they all offer the same benefits, so it is okay to choose the design you like most.
Q: How often should i wash it?
A: Wash it every 2-4 weeks with warm water and polish in the water with a soft cloth. The objective is to clean the surface of each bead so the amber can release succinic acid into the skin again. Set to air dry in the sun or area of warmth for 3 hours to bring the 'oils' so to say, to the surface.
Q: Does it need to be 'Baltic' amber to offer the traditional wellness effects?
A: Yes. Amber found in the Baltic regions have the highest levels of succinic acid. If you are wearing amber purely for aesthetic purposes, then it does not matter where your amber is from. However, if you are wearing amber for its healing properties, then it should be 'Baltic' amber.
Q: I have heard lighter colored amber is better. Is it true?
Some people have reported lighter and raw (unpolished) amber to have a slightly higher percentage of succinic acid. Unpolished and lighter amber is closer to its natural state, which could be the reason for this rational. However others say the percentage is so small that one wouldn't notice the difference. We recommend choosing the amber that you are most drawn to.
Q. Can you wear too much amber?
A: No, you cannot overdose on amber. The more amber, the more effect you will likely see.
Q: Does it get old or stop working?
A: No. However, although our thread is top quality TYTAN 10 thread, it will wear with time if exposed to water often. If you avoid wearing it in water and make efforts to take care of the thread, your jewelry pieces will stay intact.
