What is Amber?
Amber is a fossil that has long been admired and used for its beauty in jewelry and amulets since ancient times. Amber is not a stone, but actually fossilized conifer tree resin millions of years old. Amber is a product of millions of years of heat and pressure. Amber is purely organic, despite it's brilliance and translucence. Throughout history amber has been valued for its healing and therapeutic powers. Ancient Greeks and Romans believed in the magic powers of amber, it was held that its electrostatic energy had the power to draw all manner of misfortune away from people. Amber is also very popular for its inclusions, or insects and plants trapped inside which give scientists a clue what was here millions of years ago...

How does Amber work on my Pet?
Amber works on your pet in two ways... Amber is a resin which contains aromatic chemicals called terpines. This produces a resinous aroma from the amber. When worn on your pet the friction from their fur will absorb this resinous smell from the amber. These resinous aromatic terpines being released is what repels the ticks and fleas. The second way in which amber works is it has electrostatic properties. Static electricity is generated when Amber is rubbed against the fur which is also a tick and flea deterrent. The longer your pet wears the necklace, the more effective it will be. It usually takes 3 weeks or more of wear to have maximum repelling properties.
Can I just let my dog wear an amber necklace I have, or buy some Amber beads from the bead store?
Amber is most effective when it is raw, and has its natural "skin". Amber purchased for jewelry or from beads stores has been polished or heat treated to bring out its sparkle, therefore is not in it's 'raw' stage, which is needed for this application.
It has been proven that RAW Baltic Amber has the highest succinite acid, which is the cause of it's resinous properties. These properties are highest with the raw amber, or amber that still contains the outer "skin". That layer contains most of the succinit acid credited with the medical properties. I've researched and talked to many amber experts and scientists to determine the best amber to use in AmberStone collars in order for them to be the most effective, and hands down the raw Baltic Amber is the best. AmberStone Pets uses Raw Baltic Amber in all its merchandise.
