Canyon Leaf's amber jewelry is handmade using original Baltic amber that is over 45 million years old. Baltic Amber has some of the highest concentrations of Succinic Acid found in nature, and this is what makes it so special. The string in each necklaces and bracelets is knotted by hand in between each and every bead, so should the necklace break (which it should if necessary), the rest of the beads will not scatter. The necklace fastens with a screw clasp that opens and closes easily.
Amber jewelry is made for wearing not for chewing. Children should be supervised at all times when wearing jewelry, and it should be removed when child is sleeping or unattended.
