Legendary for its antiquity, quality and translucent warmth, the glowing proof of amber’s ancient heritage is captured in this sophisticated Amber Legend Pendant Necklace. Nine 8 to 12mm polished Baltic amber gems are bezel-set in sterling silver to create a timeless sterling silver pendant. A triple-strand leather cord gives this Amber Legend Pendant Necklace a hip vibe. Natural variations make each pendant one of a kind. 18"l. with 1.75"l. pendant.
Gem-quality Baltic amber, formed from conifer trees fossilized for 30 to 60 million years, is found along the southeastern shores of the Baltic Sea, especially near Gdansk, Poland, and the Russian exclave, Kaliningrad. Cognac, lemon and green are the most usual Baltic amber colors. Baltic amber in our Janet Annenberg Hooker Hall of Geology, Gems and Minerals, National Museum of Natural History, inspired this Amber Legend Pendant Necklace.
