The Amber Monkey Amber Necklaces
Baltic amber beads come from a resin from the Baltic region of the world, the most popular areas are Lithuania and Poland. Amber is known all over the world to aid in pain relief. We recommend wearing the Baltic amber closest to the painful area for the best relief. Baltic amber contains 3-8% of succinic acid which is the precursor to acetylsalicylic acid, otherwise known as one of the active ingredients in aspirin. Which explains why so many people boast of wearing Baltic amber for relief from migraines, teething, tooth aches, arthritis, carpal tunnel syndrome and sports injuries.
The small 10-11" necklace most generally fits a child until 12 months. The 13" necklace may be needed for a larger child. As the child grows, check the necklace to ensure it is still the correct size. The necklace should fit loose enough around the neck so you can insert two or three fingers but you should not be able to get the necklace above the child's chin so the necklace cannot be put in his/her mouth. The amber beads MUST NOT BE PUT INTO THE MOUTH OR CHEWED. Each bead on The Amber Monkey's necklaces is individually knotted so if the necklace does break, the beads stay intact. Clasps are designed to strip and pull open at a minimum 15 lbs pull force for ten seconds to prevent choking if one tugs or pulls on it. As with all jewelry, Baltic amber should only be worn and used under direct supervision of an adult.
The 10-11" Baltic amber is the perfect size for adult anklets. So as the child outgrows the necklace, the amber can find a new home on mom's ankle.
