The Amber in this ring comes from Russia. Amber is one of the few varieties of organic gemstones, and is set in .925 sterling silver.
Amber has been used for many generations as a medicinal gem, from the Middle Ages up until the early 20th century. Although it is an amorphous gem, it is still used for its crystal healing abilities. Since the time of Hippocrates in ancient Greece, amber and its resinous extracts have been used to cure and alleviate a variety of health ailments.
Amber can contain animal and plant inclusions, mainly mosquito's and other insects. It is a gemstone which is formed through the fossilisation of tree resin.
