Baltic amber is a fossilized resin that comes from ancient trees, primarily found in the Baltic region, including countries such as Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia. It is known for its warm, golden color and is often used in jewelry and ornamental items. Here are some key aspects and properties associated with Baltic amber:

1. Formation: Baltic amber is formed from the resin of ancient coniferous trees, particularly species like Pinus succinifera. The resin becomes fossilized over millions of years, capturing and preserving organic materials like insects and plant matter.

2. Color: Baltic amber ranges in color from pale yellow to deep orange or red-brown. The hue is influenced by factors such as the tree species, age, and impurities.

3. Inclusions: One of the distinctive features of Baltic amber is the presence of inclusions—small particles or trapped organisms. These inclusions can include insects, plant fragments, or air bubbles. Amber with well-preserved inclusions is highly prized by collectors.

4. Metaphysical Properties: Baltic amber is often associated with metaphysical properties, including:

- Healing Energy: It is believed to have healing properties and is sometimes used in holistic practices for its purported ability to alleviate pain and inflammation.

- Protection: Amber is thought to provide protective energy, acting as a shield against negative influences and promoting a sense of well-being.

- Calming and Balancing: Baltic amber is associated with calming and balancing energies. It may be used to help alleviate stress and anxiety.

- Connection to the Sun: Amber's warm, golden color is often linked symbolically to the sun. It is considered a stone of light and warmth, bringing positive energy.
