Best Amber teething necklaces?


I'm wanting to get one of these for Ella but there r different types. I know to get the rounded ones not the sharp ones and also to make sure they r individualy knotted, but what's best? Like, dark ones, light ones or does it not matter? Also what does the word "baltic" mean?
I might post this in natural parenting too..
Thanks in advance

Baltic just means that the amber comes from the baltic region. It's considered to be the "best" type of amber, for it's healing/soothing properties.

Colour doesn't matter at all afaik, it's totally down to personal preference.

I got mine from www.amber-teething-necklaces.co.uk, and am very happy with it

Not techically true...

Baltic amber is the name given to amber which contains around 8% succinic acid. It gets it's name for the location at which it is most commonly found, but you can source it from loads of other places too, most notably Germany. Domincan amber has less succinic acid in but more commonly contains insects so try to avoid the stuff that has things like leaves and bugs in.

Or you could end up with a Tyrannosaurus rex (although teething babies arnt much different)

Iv heard lighter colour amber is better but yet to find any proof of that.

Now that would be cool!

Transparent amber (known as clear yellow amber - very pale yellow) is amber that contains no impurities but it is rare (about 10% of all amber is catagorised as being this).

Yellow amber (most common) usually contains microscopic impurities or stress fractures causing it to look translucent or opaque - most common

Orange-black amber (knows as red amber) is caused by oxidation and is very rare.

All of the above could contain the same amount of succinic acid if they came from the same region they would just be different colours depending on morphology of the amber. So there is no reason why the colour would have any affect on the effectiviness for teething. It's more to do with the location of the amber in the first place.

You can also get green, white and blue amber but they are quite rare and very expensive, but very pretty.
