|The 42-million-year-old love affair Passion preserved forever in prehistoric amber! Romance doesnt get any more old-fashioned than this. This naturally golden beauty first sparkled in the sunshine over 40 million years ago. The world’s oldest natural “gem,” amber was among the first substances to be prized for its precious beauty. In scientific terms, amber is the fossilized resin of ancient trees. It can be found along the shores (and at the bottom) of the icy Baltic Sea. It isn’t easy to find and the highest quality nuggets from Scandinavia fetch as much as $1,000 a piece! But today, you can claim your own piece of prehistoric treasure for our exclusive Stauer price! This Baltic Amber Heart Necklace is crafted from a vibrant piece of natural, honey-colored amber. The smooth heart attaches to a shiny bail of .925 sterling silver (chain is included). Look closely and you can see microscopic inclusions and bubbles that identify your pendant as a naturally-formed work of art. No two are alike.
